Lane County Credit Unions Step Up for Credit Unions for Kids

Women in the credit union community are invited to put on their best little black dresses and get “all dolled up” for the second annual “Lunch at Tiffany’s” event to benefit Credit Unions for Kids.

The Lane County credit union community is sponsoring the fundraiser Nov. 2 at the Valley River Inn in Eugene, Ore. Tickets are selling for $75, and a table for 10 can be sponsored for $1,000. A silent auction will raise additional funds, with all proceeds going to support the Children’s Miracle Network at Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Lunch at Tiffany’s represents a chance for credit union professionals to network, raise money and attend a glamorous event.

“Credit unions in Lane County are stepping up to support Children’s Miracle Network by sponsoring Lunch at Tiffany’s,” said Mandy Jones, President/CEO at Oregon Community Credit Union. “It’s a great way to raise awareness and funds for an organization that makes a difference in the lives of so many families in our community, which is what credit unions are all about.”

Besides Oregon Community, other credit unions providing support for the event include Laneco Federal Credit Union, SELCO, Food Industries Federal Credit Union, FirstTech, OnPoint, Pacific Cascade FCU, Bi-Mart FCU and Northwest Community.

Last year the credit unions tried the glamour-lunch approach instead of the traditional dinner auction and it was a big hit with women in the credit union movement, according to organizers.

The theme, feeling, décor and atmosphere call to mind the 1961 Oscar-winning film starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard. Watching the original movie trailer could certainly warm up attendees’ appetites for a gracious afternoon. In addition to the glamour, champagne and great food, memorable, heartwarming stories about the children of Sacred Heart Medical Center will also be a big part of the program.
