Bidding Now Open for Cheers & Chocolates Virtual Auction


In just a few days, the Northwest credit union family will come together to raise critical funds for the Movement’s charity of choice, Credit Unions for Kids!

The Cheers & Chocolates Virtual Auction kicks off Thursday evening, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. PST (6:30 to 8 p.m. MST). For those who already registered, bidding is now open! Be sure to check your email for details on setting up your bids ahead of time, and check out all the great items up for grabs.

During the event, enjoy a guided wine and chocolate tasting as you raise your virtual paddle and honor this year’s Miracle Child, Elle Fischer. NWCUA recommends using your laptop or SmartTV to view the live auction, and using your smartphone or another device to bid.

Can’t attend the virtual auction on Nov. 12? No problem. You can donate to Cash for Kids through the CU4Kids Platform. All donations will count toward auction totals and be disbursed to the appropriate CMN hospitals.

CU4Kids, founded right here in the Northwest in 1986, benefits eight Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in the region. Over the past 24 years, Northwest credit unions raised $150 million through the nonprofit, helping CMN hospitals provide charity care to thousands of children every year and fund cutting-edge, life-saving research.

Check out the video below to hear how your CU4Kids contributions impact the lives of thousands:

There’s still time to register for the event. View the auction online for more information, and get ready for an inspiring evening of bidding for a good cause.
