Cosden Federal Credit Union will be presenting the CU 4 Reality Fair at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum in the East Room. The event will be on Wednesday, April 24th, from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM.
Student participants will experience a hands-on event that propels them through the personal financial management process, including career selection, budgeting for housing, transportation, luxuries, and more. At the end of the day, participants will have learned what it takes to make ends meet from month to month, and will have a better appreciation of the importance of budgeting, financial planning, and making wise purchasing choices.
Laurie Barraza, President of Cosden FCU, told KBest News that they are currently searching for business men and women willing to participate in this valuable experience. She noted that those who do volunteer will receive the opportunity to promote their business by volunteering to work at one of the retail booths and by providing relevant materials for this event. There are no fees to participate.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Laurie at 432-264-2600.
