Metro Hosts "Make It Your Business" Networking Reception

Metro Credit Union, in conjunction with the Newmarket Business Association, hosted the annual “Make It Your Business” networking reception for the second year in a row on Tuesday March 31, 2015 at Metro’s Massachusetts Avenue branch.

The event engages Boston’s business leaders to learn more about the impact of domestic violence on the workplace and community. This year, Governor Charlie Baker gave remarks in support of Casa Myrna’s efforts. The Corporate Engagement Award for Excellence was presented to Carol Churchill of Distrigas of Massachusetts-GDF Suez and Risa Sherman of The Boston Beer Company. Special recognition was also given to Metro’s Charlene Bauer, SVP of Community and Business Development for her dedication to community service.
 
In addition to hosting the event, Metro Credit Union made a $1,000 corporate contribution to Casa Myrna. Robert M. Cashman, President and CEO of Metro Credit Union, was pleased to personally deliver the donation, stating “Metro is pleased to support Casa Myrna again this year. We are proud to be a community partner of theirs. Shining a light onto domestic violence is our responsibility as business leaders and citizens in the community. We want to help facilitate this message and are proud to sponsor this event.”

The event was spearheaded by Saritin Rizzuto, AVP, Community Relations & Business Development at Metro Credit Union. Rizzuto has served on Casa Myrna’s Board of Directors for several years and is deeply committed to domestic violence services, education and prevention. Rizzuto is a leader in numerous nonprofit and civic organizations.
 
All event proceeds benefited Casa Myrna, Boston’s leading nonprofit delivering solutions to end domestic and dating violence.
