Employees and members of Global Credit Union, Spokane, Wash., raised a total of $9,634.27 for the Inland Northwest Chapter of Children’s Miracle Network in 2005. The fundraising effort included the sale of framed, signed and numbered prints. The prints are part of a series of eagle paintings, created for the CU by award winning wildlife artist, Janene Grende of Sandpoint, Idaho. Entertainment books, calendars, cookbooks and other fund-raising events throughout the year also were a factor. One hundred percent of all funds raised for CMN remain locally to benefit hospitals and programs, to restore, sustain and enhance the development potential of children.
