ELGA Credit Union Foundation for Impact to host “Raise the Purse” fundraising event

BURTON — The ELGA Credit Union Foundation for Impact (Foundation) is set to host “Raise the Purse”, a fundraising event to benefit Hurley Children’s Hospital – Flint’s own Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospital, on Friday (Sept. 17).

Those wishing to attend are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as the event is expected to sell out. Tickets can be purchased online at www.eventbrite.com. A direct link to purchase tickets is also available on ELGA Credit Union’s Facebook page.

“Hurley Children’s Hospital is an incredible resource to the children of our community,” said Lori Hawk, Foundation Board President. “We know that every dollar raised will go directly to impact children receiving treatments at Hurley – whether they’re spending their first days of life in the NICU or receiving treatment for cancer. We are proud to be raising funds to support Hurley as our first ELGA Credit Union Foundation for Impact fundraising event.”

Funds raised at the event will directly support pediatric patients at Hurley. Children’s Miracle Network is the charity of choice for credit unions across the United States. The event will feature new and used purses for sale – with many brand-new designer purses up for grabs. Guests will also enjoy a taco bar and a margarita.

Tickets for the event are $25 per person and available online. — G.G.
