Credit union sponsors space center exhibit

DOWNEY - Financial Partners Credit Union has donated $10,000 to sponsor the "Great Balls of Fire" exhibit now open at the Columbia Memorial Space Center.The traveling exhibit was created by the Space Science Institute's National Center for Interactive Learning, with funding from the National Science Foundation and NASA. The exhibit provides visitors with information on comets, asteroids and meteors with hands-on interactive exhibits and real meteors. "This exhibit is so interesting, educational and fun; we had to be a part of it," said Nader Moghaddam, president and CEO of Financial Partners. "The aerospace industry is obviously near and dear to our hearts as many companies within this industry are our SEGs [select employee groups]. It was a natural fit for us to be a part of this amazing program that enhances our community." Financial Partners' sponsorship, which helps fund the program, enables the credit union to have its logo on the space center's building wrap banner as well as the "Great Balls of Fire" banners that hang throughout Downey. There is also a member event, a VIP event, and Financial Partners is holding its company picnic at the venue as well. Financial Partners serves employees and their families within the aviation, aerospace and healthcare industries in the Los Angeles area.
