Last Chance to Donate to the Credit Unions for Kids Auction at MAXX


On Oct. 24, the entire Northwest credit union community will don Kentucky Derby finery to raise thousands of dollars for eight Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the region.

For credit unions considering donating an item to this year’s silent or live auctions at MAXX, the deadline to contribute is Sept. 22. Funds raised from auction items will be sent to the donor’s local CMN hospital, while funds pledged as cash contributions or toward priceless items will be sent to the winning bidder’s local CMN hospital.

The auction will feature a range of items in every price range. Last year’s donations were valued from $25 to more than $1,500. Creative contributions included dinner with Seahawks Hall-of-Famer Steve Largent, a golf getaway to Scottsdale, Arizona, a custom American Girl doll to be given to a patient at the winning bidder’s local CMN hospital, among many others.

Click here for the auction item donation form. Item drop-off locations can be found throughout the Northwest, or credit unions can bring items directly to the MAXX Convention. Contact NWCUA Community Manager Carmen Vigil at or 206.340.4817 with donation questions.

We also continue to welcome sponsorships for the auction through mid-October. Several sponsorships are still available, including the Enter the Race sponsorship. This sponsorship recognizes your credit union on a horse and jockey decal at the event for a donation of $1,000. Sponsorship funds will be sent to the sponsor’s local CMN hospital.

If you are interested in a sponsorship opportunity, please reach out to Kaitlin Ramos, NWCUA Program Manager, at 503.350.2208 or
