MADISON, Wis. (7/12/11)--Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable arm of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), opened bidding on its online charity auction Monday. Bidding will take place online at www.biddingforgood.com/woccu through July 26. All proceeds will be used to expand WOCCU’s credit union development work worldwide. The online format allows everyone to bid, including friends and family outside the credit union industry or those unable to attend the live event at WOCCU’s World Credit Union Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, July 24 through July 27. This year’s auction features hundreds of items from around the world, including sports tickets, artwork, jewelry and travel packages. “We have fantastic items this year, all donated by our fellow credit union colleagues around the world,” said Judy Ensweiler, wife of Texas Credit Union League President/CEO Dick Ensweiler, who is co-chairing the auction this year with Crissy Cheney, wife of Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Bill Cheney. “By bidding, you’ll not only get something great, but you’ll be supporting WOCCU’s development work and expanding credit union access to people worldwide.” Auction items were donated by credit unions, leagues, credit union service organizations and vendors from throughout the worldwide movement.
