SAN FRANCISCO and KANSAS CITY, Mo. (10/27/14)--As the World Series battles on between the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants, a friendly rivalry between two credit unions hailing from both cities has been formed.
Before the series began last week, Brandon Michaels, president/CEO of Mazuma CU, Kansas City, with $488 million in assets, accepted a bet offered by Steven Stapp, president/CEO of San Francisco FCU, with $884 million in assets, on who will win the fall classic.
To the winner will go a famous foodstuff from the opponent's city.
Should Stapp and the Giants win, San Francisco FCU will receive Kansas City's famous barbecue sauce. If Michaels and the Royals win, Mazuma will receive that delicious San Francisco sourdough bread.
Food isn't the only item on the line. Also riding on the bet are donations to charities in each of the cities the credit unions serve.
If the Giants beat the Royals in the seven-game series, Mazuma will make a donation to St. Anthony's, a social services foundation in San Francisco. Likewise, if Kansas City takes the series, San Francisco FCU will donate to Spofford House, also a social services organization.
