Worldwide foundations online auction goes live today
MADISON, Wis. (7/9/12)--Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable arm of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), opened bidding on its online charity auction today.

Bidding will take place online at www.biddingforgood.com/woccu through July 17. All proceeds will be used to expand WOCCU's credit union development work worldwide.

The online format allows everyone to bid, including friends and family outside the credit union industry.

This year's auction features hundreds of items from all over the world, from sports tickets, artwork and jewelry to one-of-a-kind experiences and travel packages.

"The credit union industry really stepped up this year and donated some extraordinary items," said Crissy Cheney, wife of Credit Union National Association President/ CEO Bill Cheney. She is co-chairing the auction this year with Judy Ensweiler, wife of Texas Credit Union League President/CEO Dick Ensweiler. "By bidding, you'll not only get something great, but you'll be supporting WOCCU's development work and expanding credit union access to people worldwide."

Auction items were donated by credit unions, state credit union leagues, credit union service organizations and vendors from throughout the worldwide movement. Donations can still be made. Donors are encouraged to post their items online rather than take them to the World Credit Union Conference in Gdańsk, Poland, since space at the conference is limited.

For more information, use the link, contact Valerie Breunig at 608-395-2055 or e-mail auction@woccu.org.
