SANTA ROSA, Calif. (10/23/09)--Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is encouraging members to “dream big” with RCU’s new “Big Picture, Big Value” photo contest and win $2,009 to be placed in a member’s savings account in 2009. The promotion encourages people to look at their personal “big picture”--their reason for saving money, borrowing responsibly and participating fully in their credit union to gain the best possible value on their financial services--and then submit an original photo of their “Big Picture” dream online by Nov. 8. Photos will be posted to the credit union’s website and the public can vote for their favorite “Big Picture” online Nov. 9 through Nov. 22. The grand prize winner will be announced on or before Dec. 15, and $2,009 will be deposited into an RCU Build-Your-Own savings account to help members save for their designated goals. “As the overall economic picture begins to show signs of improvement, this promotion encourages our members and communities to focus on their own financial ‘big picture,’ set goals for their future, and have a little fun by sharing their big dream for a chance to win the cash to help them achieve that dream,” said Karen Graves, RCU senior marketing specialist, who is leading the “Big Picture” promotion. RCU, based in Santa Rosa, Calif., has more than $1.7 billion in assets.
