Spokane credit unions raised over $159,000 for Credit Unions for Kids last year, a milestone celebrated recently by the Children’s Miracle Network and the Spokane Chapter of Credit Unions.

The festive gathering included an awards presentation luncheon, a tour of Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital and a superhero cape-making contest. The contest set the stage for the Northwest Credit Union Association’s Heroes of Hope dinner and auction to benefit Credit Unions for Kids, which is scheduled to take place on October 8 in Spokane.
