Park City Credit Union's Summer Celebration!
Park City Credit Union Celebrates Local Businesses during Credit Union Month
Park City Credit Union will celebrate local businesses by holding more than a dozen “Cash Mobs for a Cause,” throughout the month of October in honor of International Credit Union Month. Cash mobs will be held in Merrill, Tomahawk, Minocqua, and Rhinelander.
Park City Credit Union originally launched their Buzz Points program in 2013, and began holding “Cash Mobs for a Cause” for the businesses that joined the program shortly after. A “cash mob” is similar to a “flash mob” where large groups of people meet somewhere and break out in dance. With a cash mob however, the goal is to create groups of shoppers verse dancers. The credit union advertises the cash mob and donates $1 to a local non-profit for each person that attends, up to $100. The business owners often offers extremely attractive specials and a drawing for a gift certificate for mob attendees. To date they’ve held dozens of cash mobs, supporting local businesses throughout the Northwoods.
“While shopping is encouraged, we make a donation for everyone who enters the building,” said Wrycha. “The value of bringing large groups of community members into a business is much greater than the sales receipts obtained. It is about creating an awareness surrounding the treasures a specific local business offers, and also reminds people about the importance of shopping local.”

Park City Credit Union Donates to Serenity Garden at Local Tomahawk Hospital
Park City Credit Union recently donated $500 to be used for the Serenity Garden that is being constructed at Ministry Sacred Heart Hospital in Tomahawk. The project is being run by local Tomahawk teen, Callie Wyles as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award.
“It’s such a wonderful project and we knew we wanted to offer additional support,” said Val Mindak, President/CEO. “We’re very proud to have such an inspiring person in our community.”
Park City Credit Union also recently took part in a “Dress Down Day” along with other Tomahawk financials to help raise for Wyles project. The project will also incorporate several items from the former hospital to help keep that history alive.
