Minn. CUs For Kids Invited To State CMN Collaboration Forum
MINNETONKA, Minn. (10/21/13)--Two Minnesota credit union leaders were invited to participate in a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals state fundraisers' collaboration forum.

The invitation signifies the importance of Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids (MnCU4Kids) as a state sponsor for the network, said the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation.

MnCU4Kids Co-chairs Marlo Hirl of General Mills FCU, Minnetonka, and David Engler of Hiway FCU, St. Paul, were among the invited guests.

The forum is a biannual event that brings together representatives from the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals premier corporate sponsors, including Credit Unions For Kids, WalMart, Costco, Ace Hardware, Super America, Dairy Queen, Marriott and RE/MAX.

Credit unions are the third largest corporate contributor to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals annually. Credit Unions for Kids has raised more than $100 million for hospitals since its inception in 1996.  In 2012, MnCU4Kids raised more than $200,000 through support from credit unions, their members, and local and national companies--such as CO-OP Financial Services--that work with credit unions.

Hirl noted the success of MnCU4Kids and the opportunity to share its successes and collaborate with others. "It's very valuable to hear from other fundraising organizations and to discuss events and strategies around the charitable work that we're doing to support Gillette [Children's Specialty Healthcare] and CMN," Hirl added.
