Along with our longtime partner MRHV Show Association, we were pleased to make a $23,544 joint donation to Washington State Parks.

MHRV Show Association produces the Seattle and Puyallup RV shows. For the past five years, WSECU has been the presenting sponsor of both shows.  

Each organization donated $1 from every regularly-priced ticket sold at the box office for the shows. This donation is earmarked to support First Day Hikes, which encourages family hikes on New Year's Day, and the Capitol Camp Out event, which introduces the fun of camping and outdoor recreation to children who might otherwise not have experienced it.  

"Washington State Parks are as iconic as the Space Needle," said Ann Flannigan, WSECU's VP of Public Relations. "It's great to be able to collaborate with MHRV on such a significant donation to these public treasures."  

Because both organizations share a commitment to giving back to their community, the partnership has allowed them to double a contribution beyond what either could do on its own.  

"The Association's affiliation with state parks goes back many years," said Dave Helgeson, MHRV Show Association Director. "These public assets need community support and we're thrilled that the money will help more people discover the beauty and amenities of the parks."
