In 2010, James Robert Lay brought down the house with his Frap (Financial Rap) and this year the CU*Swag gang took it up a notch and brought all kinds of crazy with a T-shirt fashion show for charity!
Here's some info from a press release:
CU*SWAG Helps Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
CU*SWAG held its first fashion show at the 2011 CU Water Cooler Symposium in Fishers, IN on September 30th. For each person that participated in the fashion show, CU*SWAG donated $50 to the Credit Unions 4 Kids group, which benefits the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. $600 was raised.
"Once again we have shown that the asterisk in our name is all about bringing awareness and a focus to a cause. We believe credit unions are a cause and embrace the power of people helping people. We are so grateful for all of the participants, as they as the ones who made this donation possible," said Aaron Mireles, tailor of conversation for CU*SWAG and host of the 2011 CU*SWAG Fashion Show, "A Swag for All Seasons."
At the symposium, each sponsor was given 12 minutes of stage time to utilize in any way they wished. CU*SWAG chose to use their time not only showcasing their many shirt designs, but raising money for a cause that they so greatly believe in.
Once again, thanks to all of our sponsors for helping fund this amazing annual event!
