MADISON, Wis. (12/16/13)--Known for his hits "Take Me Home Tonight" and "Two Tickets to Paradise," '80s rocker Eddie Money will open the 2014 Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference Feb. 23 in Washington, D.C.
Money's appearance during Sunday night's opening is sponsored by CUNA Councils. "His music spans genres and generations," said Rudy Pereira, president/CEO, Royal CU, Eau Claire, Wis., and chair of the CUNA Council Forum. "It's sure to bring this year's attendees together and get them energized for the high-impact week ahead."
Money's career began in the late '70s with his self-titled album and the hits "Baby Hold On" and "Two Tickets to Paradise." Throughout the 1980s, Money had a string of Top 40 hits. Proceeds from the sales of his 2011 single "One More Soldier Coming Home" go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund that supports U.S. military personnel wounded or injured in service.
