Sun City Man Wins Trip of a Lifetime to One of Sports’ Biggest Games

SUN CITY, AZ (February 12, 2019) — For Joseph Billingsley, a veteran and Sun City resident who goes by “Joe,” Christmas came early — and from an unlikely source. On December 19, he received an email from Desert Financial Credit Union, where he was a member, inviting him to participate in their “Big Kickoff Sweepstakes.”

One day later, Joe got the call.

It was his Desert Financial Sun City branch, and they had news to share. Joe had won the sweepstakes, and with it, two flights to Atlanta, a hotel stay and $5,000 cash for the weekend of February 2 and 3. Most importantly, the winnings included two tickets to one of the biggest games in sports.

Earlier this month, Joe and his guest Susan Rinaldini took the winning trip of a lifetime, experiencing an event few others do.

The “Big Kickoff Sweepstakes” from Desert Financial Credit Union was part of a 2018 “Year of Giving,” with a goal of investing $7M in the community and its members, and offering chances to win exceptional experiences, support education, and improve the community.

“Giving back to the members we serve is a core part of our business,” said Desert Financial Credit Union President & CEO Jeff Meshey. “It was a pleasure for both myself and our entire company to be able to treat Joe, a 13-year-member of Desert Financial, to such a special event.”

As the new year gets underway, Desert Financial Credit Union is planning another year of impact. The organization is increasing its member giveback bonus from $5 million to $8 million, and continuing its teacher appreciation, Random Acts of Kindness, and other community-wide initiatives.
