LA Financial Federal Credit Union turned 75 on Feb. 11, and the celebration will continue all year.
And in marking the milestone, the Pasadena, Calif.-based credit union is conducting a $75-a-day giveaway sweepstakes.
“We wanted to do something big to thank our members for their loyalty and support. With this sweepstakes, we’re able to have hundreds of winners instead of just a few,” said Renee Mackanin, vice president of marketing. In addition to the drawings for $75, iPods and other promotional items will be offered.
LA Financial Federal Credit Union began as L.A. County Court Employees Federal Credit Union in 1937. But in 1944, L.A. County Court Employees Federal Credit Union merged with Los Angeles County Hall of Records Credit Union to create Courts and Records Federal Credit Union. On Jan. 1, 2003, the name was changed to LA Financial Federal Credit Union, a name that better reflects the credit union’s diverse and growing membership and expanding services, the credit unions said. In 2004, a community charter was granted allowing anyone who lives, works or worships in Los Angeles County to join. The CU has $348 million in assets.
