NAPERVILLE – June 1, 2015 – The community is invited to stop by DuPage Credit Union’s booth during A Taste of Wheaton June 5th and 6th in Wheaton’s Memorial Park, to help us pack a backpack with cash – to help local students.

During the Pack the Backpack Raffle, adults ages 18 and over can purchase raffle tickets for $5 each or three for $10. Prizes to be raffled off over the course of the two-day event include professional baseball tickets, gift certificates and more. Tickets will only be sold at the Credit Union’s booth at A Taste of Wheaton.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Pack the Backpack Raffle will benefit DuPage County students in need through the Credit Union’s We’ve Got Your Back backpack fundraising campaign.

“Come on out and help the kids right here in our community,” said Amy Brandt, Vice President of Business Solutions. “Our goal is to raise awareness and money for DuPage County students in need. Through our We’ve Got Your Back backpack fundraising campaign we hope to raise $20,000, which will be used to buy 1,000 backpacks and school supplies to stuff them with.”

The Credit Union would like to thank our 2015 We’ve Got Your Back sponsors for their generous support: BUY Bernadette & Yvonne of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, Citadel Information Management, Chicago Title, Jen Vonesh of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Clique Studio, Enterprise Car Sales, Kaleidoscope, Law Offices of Lora Fausett, Suburban Life Media,, Freese & Associates, Inc., totally, Daniel & Associates Real Estate, Response Graphics & Embroidery, LLC, Patty Gustin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Aubrey Sign Company, That Special Touch Events, Namasté Salon & Spa, Zazú Hair Salon & Day Spa, VISOgraphic, Inc.
