N.Y. CUs raise $83K for charity at annual convention
ALBANY, N.Y. (7/7/14)--Attendees of the Credit Union Association of New York's annual meeting and convention participated in several fundraising initiatives, netting more than $83,000 for three causes: the New York Credit Union Foundation, the state-level Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC) and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that serve New York.
 
The four-day event, held June 19-22, drew nearly 700 New York credit union professionals, volunteers and suppliers to the Saratoga Hilton at City Center in Saratoga, N.Y.
 
"On behalf of New York's credit unions, I would like to thank everyone who made this year's convention such a great success," said William J. Mellin, league president/CEO. "Over the course of just four days, we were able to raise more than $83,000, illustrating--once again--that New York's credit unions truly are 'United for Good.'"
 
Among the fundraising activities the group participated in:
  • New York Credit Union Foundation: Through sponsorships and credit union support for the annual golf tournament held June 19 and June 21, CUNA Mutual Group provided  the foundation with more than $40,000.
  • Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC): By supporting the annual bingo event and silent auction, convention attendees raised more than $19,000 for CUPAC.
  • Children's Miracle Network Hospitals: Through sponsorships, donations and a match from CO-OP Financial Services' Miracle Match program, a wine pull to benefit the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals that serve New York raised more than $24,100.
