— Others have had their ups and downs. SEFCU employee Linda MacLead said she’s been attending the event for the past 10 years and oftentimes makes it to the final round. This year, however, she was handed the Bankruptcy Award after being the very first player in the competition to go completely bankrupt.

“I just love everything,” she said. “I ran out of money and I made bad investments. Next year I’ll win it all.”

Costigan said her favorite part about the game is SEFCU’s fundraising efforts.

“Monopoly as game is fun but to me, it goes beyond that because now it raises money for our center,” she said.
