Cabrillo Credit Union and CO-OP Miracle Match Raise $40,000 for Rady Children’s Hospital

San Diego County CA— Cabrillo Credit Union just completed a month-long fundraising campaign, where they raised a record $40,000 to benefit Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

“In our 20 years of fundraising for Rady Children’s, this has been our biggest year yet,” said Anne McClure, Cabrillo’s Senior Vice President. “We’re very grateful to our credit union members, staff and vendors who made this year’s fundraising so successful.”

Each May, credit unions around the country collectively raise funds for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through an initiative aptly named the Miracle Month of May. This year, Cabrillo Credit Union was the largest fundraiser for Rady Children’s, among more than a dozen credit unions in San Diego County, including many that are much larger than Cabrillo.

Cabrillo raised more than $20,000 through the sale of paper balloons to members and vendors.  In addition, Cabrillo employees held department sponsored events and a silent auction, raising an additional $10,000.

Cabrillo Credit Union also received a $10,000 grant from CO-OP Financial Services through their Miracle Match program.

“We are so appreciative of the support our members, vendors and staff showed, to help this great cause.” said McClure. “We also appreciate the generosity of CO-OP Financial Services.”
