Herndon, Va. – Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation, the charitable arm of Northwest Federal Credit Union, is holding a car raffle to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network and its Ben DeFelice Scholarship Fund. The event is in partnership with Sport Honda, a dealership in Silver Spring, Md.

“We are so excited to have this opportunity to make a huge impact on our scholarship program and our efforts to support Children’s Miracle Network, while at the same time giving someone a new car,” said Linda Rogus, NWFCU Foundation Executive Director.

The raffle proceeds will support medical research and the treatment of young patients receiving care at CMN hospitals, including the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The raffle will also help fund the Foundation’s Ben DeFelice scholarships, which recognize students showing leadership, dedication and commitment in their schools, homes and communities. The scholarship, named in honor of the Credit Union’s longest-running board chairman, has awarded more than $550,000 to 126 student recipients since 2005. 

Tickets may be purchased during business hours at the Foundation’s office in Herndon or during Foundation events, and at any of the six Credit Union branch locations (Chantilly, Gainesville, Herndon, Leesburg, Manassas or Vienna). Cost is $10 per ticket, or 3 tickets for $20. A maximum of 4.000 tickets will be sold, with the winner announced June 2. The official rules are available at www.nwfcufoundation.org.
