CUs for Kids wine auction raises 175000 for hospitals
DANA POINT, Calif. (4/6/09)--The fourth annual California and Nevada Credit Unions for Kids Wine Auction raised $175,000 for 11 Children’s Miracle Network-affiliated hospitals in the two states. More than 175 attendees from 55 credit unions attended the March 27 event. The event’s special guest was Sammy Heim, 11, from Children’s Hospital Orange County. Heim was diagnosed with a soft tissue tumor and underwent 40 weeks of treatment. She is currently in remission. The event also included a cash paddle bid in memory of Ed Callahan, credit union industry leader and retired CEO of Patelco CU, died a week before the auction. In 2008, credit unions and state leagues raised more than $9.3 million for the network through the Credit Unions for Kids program. About 5,000 credit unions fundraise for the program, according to the network.
