Fort Worth Chapter Bake Auction Benefits Cornerstone Foundation
Thursday, May 26, 2016 7:00 AM

On May 24, the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions held a bake auction for the benefit of the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, raising more than $3,400. The chapter has held this auction annually since 2009, and it's proven to be a fun, collaborative, and sometimes competitive way of raising funds for an organization that gives back so much to the credit unions it serves.

For the auction, baked goods were donated by credit union CEOs, volunteers, vendors, staff, and credit union members. Bidders had their choice of cupcakes, cake balls, brownies, cakes, bread puddings, and even a ding dong cake—most of which were homemade.

Approximately 75 people were in attendance as Cornerstone Credit Union League CEO Dick Ensweiler delivered a speech on the state of the credit union industry; updates on Cornerstone, including the importance of our partnership with CUNA and the continuing need for advocacy. Every voice, every voter makes a difference for the credit union movement. Dick stresses that we need the legislators to hear what credit unions are doing for their constituents. 

“May is always one of our more exciting and well-attended meetings each year," said Fort Worth Chapter Vice Chair/Program Chair Beth M. Peters." The Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions would like to thank our bakers and those that came with deep pockets to help benefit this wonderful organization.”

“The Annual Fort Worth bake sale creates a lot of spirited competition among staff, CEOs, and vendors," said Foundation Development Director Staci Zale, "but it is not about who outbids who or who wins the best homemade cake (yum). Everyone was just sharing in the fun and taking pride in the fact that they’re raising money for a worthy cause."
