Northland Sells Winning Grand Raffle TicketNorthland Sells Winning Grand Raffle Ticket

Northland member Dale Boudrie purchased a winning Grand Raffle ticket at our Houghton Lake branch in October. Boudrie’s 3rd place prize ticket scored him a check for $1,000. Heather Dowland, Member Service Representative III at Houghton Lake, sold Boudrie his winning raffle ticket. She received $100 for her part in the Grand Raffle fundraising effort.
Jack Eling, Northland Senior Vice President of Lending, said, “The Grand Raffle is one of the biggest fundraising events in the credit union movement to continue our efforts at working for consumer-friendly legislation. We are thrilled that one of our members is a winner of this statewide event.”
The Grand Raffle is administered by the MCUL & Affiliates Government Affairs staff and proceeds benefit the MCUL Federal PAC. This PAC helps credit unions to have a voice in Washington by educating and supporting candidates who support the credit union movement to help non-profit credit unions remain tax-exempt and allow them to provide good rates with low costs.
