How do you raise $1 million in one night for an incredible cause? Talk to the folks at Credit Unions for Kids, who raised over $1 million for 11 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in California and Nevada at its annual Wine Auction a couple weeks ago. It's the third consecutive year the Wine Auction has surpassed the $1 million mark -- and since 2006, it has raised more than $6 million overall.
To get the details on this amazing milestone, we invited Credit Unions for Kids Executive Director Joe Dearborn on the show. Joe shared the event's activities, all the credit unions involved, and goals for next year's Wine Auction -- perhaps $2 million?
We also discussed a couple of other upcoming campaigns in which credit unions nationwide can participate: "Change a Child's Life" and "CO-OP Miracle Match." Stay tuned for more info on those in the coming weeks.
