More than 265 credit union supporters gathered at the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation Awards Gala last week in Charlotte to celebrate the many accomplishments of credit unions in the Carolinas and honor several credit union professionals. The annual fundraising event for the Foundation is held in conjunction with the League’s LAUNCH Conference.

The awards gala was sponsored by the League, CUNA Mutual Group, Your Marketing Co., and numerous other credit unions and business partners, whose support made the evening possible. Guests, many of which arrived in their Gatsby-inspired attire to celebrate a new “Roaring 20s” this year, were welcomed with a networking cocktail reception then plated dinner and awards ceremony. A new casino Afterparty, hosted by the Young Professionals of the Carolinas, capped off the festivities for the night.
