Maine Highland FCU to Sponsor Table at CWC Auction

Maine Highlands Federal Credit Union is the first local business to sponsor a table at the Charlotte White Center Auction!  The CWC auction is trying new things this year to engage the community, raise donations and increase attendance at their annual fundraiser.  Sponsorship options are part of the new approach.

"Our auction is young and we are doing everything we can to grow it.  We are commited to continuing to provide community childrens' service programs--some of which are completely funded through donations.  We have to get out there and get the dollars.  We are thrilled Maine Highlands FCU is joining us in this work!" said Erica Lewis, Development Director for CWC.
