ISHPEMING, Mich. – A member of Ishpeming Community FCU won the $10,000 Michigan credit unions’ Own Your Money sweepstakes just by clicking on the credit union’s link.
The sweepstakes was part of a statewide campaign aimed at raising awareness of Michigan credit unions. The campaign also included the launch of a new destination for Michigan credit union information, CU Link, at www.creditunionlink.org.
The winning member’s name was drawn at random from more than 32,000 entries in the online sweepstakes, which ran from May 14 to June 27. Members and non-members were invited to watch a video about credit unions to be entered into the drawing for a $10,000 grand prize. Many credit unions also had direct links to the sweepstakes on their websites.
In addition to the $10,000 grand prize, more than 1,000 instant prizes worth a total of $20,000 were awarded.
