CHEERS for a cause: Carolinas Foundation seeks donations ahead of Annual Meeting
Wednesday, May 1, 2019
With a little more than a month left until the Carolinas Credit Union League’s 2019 Annual Meeting, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is gearing up for its Silent Auction and Wine Pull fundraiser – CHEERS!
The Foundation is inviting credit unions as well as exhibitors to donate items for the fundraiser to benefit the Foundation’s scholarship and grant programs. This year’s wine pull will take place in the exhibit hall and the silent auction will be held in the Coolidge Room, near registration.
You can offer your support in three ways:
1. Wine donations with a value of at least $20 per bottle for the Wine Pull (high-end bottles are appreciated!).
2. Silent Auction donations of any sort (we already have NASCAR tickets for Darlington, Yeti merchandise and art!).
3. Monetary donations to purchase wine (we have a discount source!).
How to submit your donation
Simply complete the donation form to ensure your credit union or company is recognized as a supporter. If you are attending the Annual Meeting, you can simply bring your wine or auction donation to the conference registration area on Sunday, June 2 between 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. The Foundation can also arrange for an early pickup at your credit union or you may contact Lauren Whaley at email@example.com to coordinate delivery of your items to the Foundation.
How to participate
For the wine pull, attendees will pay to “pull” a number which corresponds to a number on a bottle of wine. For the silent auction, the Foundation will have a designated area for the donated items – like electronics, designer handbags and art!
Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Foundation’s programs including those for: needs-based and academic scholarships for credit union members in the Carolinas; professional development grants for small credit unions; and the new community grant initiative launching in 2020.
Last year’s event raised more than $8,200 thanks to the many generous donors.
