MemberSource Credit Union Announces "Mustang Mondays"
Thursday, April 30, 2015 6:50 AM

If one word were to be chosen to describe MemberSource Credit Union CEO and Cornerstone Credit Union League Board Chairman, Kenny Harrington, it would be innovative. Close runners up would be creative and competitive. That's why, when given the opportunity to sell raffle tickets and raise funds for Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, he came up with a great idea to incentivize his staff to buy a ticket.

The Cornerstone Foundation launched a campaign at the Cornerstone Credit Union League Annual Meeting to give away a red 2015 Ford Mustang. The campaign supports the Foundation's three main initiatives: financial education programs for youth and adults, professional development for credit union staff and volunteers, and disaster relief for credit union staff when disaster strikes. Chances to win are $35 per raffle ticket, or three for $100, and only 3,000 tickets will be sold. The drawing will be held Sept. 10.

With that in mind, Harrington came up with what he calls "Mustang Mondays." His offer for Mustang Mondays is this:  each staff member who purchases at least one raffle ticket is eligible to wear a credit union shirt with jeans, long shorts, capris, or denim skirts each Monday during June, July, and August. That's 14 Mondays in total. Plus, any shoes may be worn, from tennis shoes to flip-flops—just about anything goes.

After attending the Annual Meeting, Harrington committed to selling 40 raffle tickets. MemberSource employees didn't wait long to jump on the deal. Within one week, almost every single ticket was sold. True to his competitive nature, Harrington promptly secured an additional 30 raffle tickets.

“The Foundation continues to be blown away by Kenny’s support of the Foundation over the years," said Foundation Development Director Staci Zale. "He has truly taken it to a new level with Mustang Mondays. Kenny not only just sells raffle tickets to his staff, but he also takes the time to educate them on how their Foundation is making a difference in their communities. We are grateful to Kenny and his staff for their belief in our vision and mission." 

If you're in Houston on a Mustang Monday in June, July, or August, be sure to stop by MemberSource CU. They'll be the ones in shorts and flip-flops. And perhaps one of them will be driving a new red Mustang in September.
