California Credit Union League, Santa Rosa, Calif., raised $2,400 through its Wine Country Chapter for Becoming Independent, a local nonprofit organization that promotes participation and community inclusion for persons with developmental disabilities and their families. The Wine Country Chapter, together with a number of credit union industry business partners, tested their trivia knowledge at a quiz night-themed fundraising event.

United Heritage Credit Union, Austin, Texas, contributed over $22,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network and the Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas. The credit union, which joined forces with the Austin Chapter of Credit Unions, raffled off a 2009 Pontiac G5 and used games to create a branch challenge. In the baby doll-challenge. each branch was given a baby doll and had to sell raffle tickets in order to purchase all the items the babies needed from the “store” created on the credit union’s internal employee Web site. The winner of the contest was the first branch that purchased all the items. All the dolls were donated to the child life staff at the medical center.
