Get Ready for an Enchanted Night of Miracles

This year, the Credit Union for Kids Auction aims to raise $1 million for children in need of lifesaving health care.


Last year’s Credit Unions for Kids auction raised over $900,000 for CMN Hospitals.

Mark your calendars, don your finest attire, and get ready to raise your paddles high for a memorable night at this year’s Credit Union for Kids Auction on Sept. 30, during the Northwest Credit Union Association’s annual MAXX Convention in Portland.

This year’s auction, themed the Northwest Enchanted Gala, will celebrate the captivating beauty of the region we call home. The fundraising goal this year is $1 million. Last year, credit unions did an astounding job of raising $900,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which provide lifesaving care for youth in the Northwest. Funds raised last year and electric cars are currently being distributed to the region’s hospitals.

“Last year’s auction was unforgettable. Credit unions constantly amaze me with their generosity and support,” said Director of Programming, Holly Miller. “We can’t wait to see what happens at this year’s auction and have no doubt that our credit unions will help us make more miracles possible in the Northwest.”

The magical evening will feature an inspiring Miracle Child, soon to be announced, and will welcome back Auctioneer Sean Kelly, who will once again energetically lead the bidding for enticing vacation getaways; sports outings; and several themed gift baskets full of wine, treats, jewelry, and more.

The Credit Unions for Kids charity began in 1986 when a group of Northwest credit unions began raising money for CMN Hospitals. Their model was “adopted” by the national Credit Union Movement 10 years later and has seen incredible success ever since.
