WOCCU charity auction goes online at The 1
LAS VEGAS (6/29/10)--The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable and gift-receiving arm of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), has taken its annual auction online this year. Shoppers worldwide will bid online on contributed auction items to help raise funds for global credit union development work.

The auction, traditionally part of WOCCU’s World Credit Union Conference, will be held this year at The 1 Credit Union Conference, the joint event sponsored by WOCCU and Credit Union National Association (CUNA) that will convene July 11-14 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Conference participants may examine items up for bid in person, then go to one of the computer terminals in the auction hall and place bids (use the link). Individuals who are not attending the conference may also bid on items at the same Web address. “In the past, only conference attendees could bid on the auction items, but this year the auction is open to everyone,” said Judy Ensweiler, wife of Texas Credit Union League President/CEO Dick Ensweiler. She is co-chairing the auction this year with Crissy Cheney, wife of incoming CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney. “WOCCU works every day to improve the lives of those less fortunate by developing credit union systems around the globe,” she added. The auction site became available for viewing Monday, enabling bidding to begin. The bidding ends at the closing of the conference trade show July 13 at 1:45 p.m. Winning bidders will be notified via e-mail. A live auction will be held during the conference’s closing event July 14, with auctioneer Dick Ensweiler presenting the auction’s premier items for bidding. Bidders may register online with a credit or debit card (no cash will be accepted) and bid any time until July 13. For more information about the auction, contact Valerie Breunig, Worldwide Foundation executive director, at 608-395-2055 or vbreunig@woccu.org. For more information, use the links.
