Sunset Credit Union hosts coffee, lunch “cash mob” event

Tues., Oct 17, various locations


In celebration of International Credit Union Week, Sunset Credit Union will be holding a “cash mob” at two local businesses, Poppa’s Haven Coffee and Bandito Taco & Taste of Persia. A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. They are a form of flash mob, and are inspired by them.

From 8:30-10:30 am Sunset Credit Union will be giving anyone who visits Poppa’s Haven Coffee, 800 NW Murray Blvd., $2 toward their purchase of any beverage or food item bought there.

Then from 11:30 am-1:30 pm, the credit union will go to Bandito Taco & Taste of Persia, 13571 NW Cornell Rd, and give $2 toward lunch to anyone who stops in, .

“We’ve been a part of this community for over 57 years,” said Rhonda Baggarley, CEO/president of Sunset Credit Union, “and we’re always looking for ways to help support our local businesses. So we thought that we could encourage more people to visit these businesses by offering to help pay for their coffee or lunch for one day. Plus, it’s a great way for everyone to meet the people who live and work in Cedar Mill, so we hope everyone invites their friends to join us too.”

In addition to the $2 to be used at each location, everyone who attends either event will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
