Wed, Jan 4, 2017

Columbia, Maryland

The holiday season got off to a great start for 12 lucky winners of the 2016 CULAC Holiday Sweepstakes sponsored by the MD|DC Credit Union Association. 12 winning tickets were pulled on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 by CUNA Advocacy Team Members Trey Hawkins (Vice President, Political Affairs) and Alex Ginis (Political Programs Manager).  Winners received prizes ranging from a 60” flat screen TV to an iPad Pro and an aerial drone.

The sweepstakes raised more than $7,000 for CULAC, which is the political action committee that helps to support credit union-friendly candidates who are running for U.S. Congress.
