|Volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House (above) and the CUdowntown event combined forces to have fun and help out good causes!
Cuaware, a council of the NC Credit Union League, recently held two fun events that supported local charities. All told, the two groups secured nearly $700 in donations for meal expenses, donated $2,500 in wish list items for the Ronald McDonald House in Durham and raised nearly $500 for the iCan House in Winston-Salem.
CUaware Triad's fundraising event, called CUdowntown, featured an 80s themed tour of local restaurants and bars in downtown Winston-Salem. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event benefited the iCan House, a non-profit organization in Winston-Salem, NC that provides educational resources and social interaction opportunities to those who live with social challenges. 25 people signed up for the event, dressed in 80s fashion and raised a total of $450.

Meanwhile, CUaware’s charity event on September 25, 2013 at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham was also a huge success! In total, 16 volunteers from five different credit unions plus the NC Credit Union League were there to cook, clean, decorate and entertain. With the generosity of a $500 donation from the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, $100 in smaller contributions from credit union employees and $100 in donations from local grocery stores, the CUaware volunteers were able to make “Fiesta Night” memorable! In addition, an estimated $2,500 wish list items were contributed by CUaware. For more details, please click here.
