KCT Credit Union to help fight breast cancer with Denim Day

Published: Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

KCT Credit Union is going “Denim for a Day” on Friday. The event will celebrate Lee National Denim Day, a fundraiser created by Lee Jeans in which companies allow employees to dress casually for a day in exchange for a donation to the American Cancer Society.

“Our employees are always interested in participating in more charitable causes,” said Kristine Kowalski, vice president of marketing for KCT Credit Union, in a news release.

“Lee National Denim Day is easy and fun to do. Everyone gets to wear jeans to work in exchange for a donation, and the money helps fight breast cancer, a cause that is very important to many of our employees.”

The net proceeds from Lee National Denim Day will support the American Cancer Society’s community-based programs, including screenings for breast cancer.

They also will go toward Hope Lodge, which provides cancer patients and their families with a free place to stay when they have to travel for breast cancer treatment.

Those who want to help the American Cancer Society can donate to the KCT Credit Union Lee National Denim Day effort.

“In addition to stopping by our Elgin, Geneva or Aurora offices, the community may make donations to Lee National Denim Day by accessing KCT’s fundraising team page at,” Kowalski said.
