Allstar Financial Group has added Cathy Cobbs to its advertising division as its Public Relations manager.
Cobbs’ functions will include community engagement locally and nationally for Allstar Financial Group’s family of companies. She will work with the Allstar Charitable Foundation to raise public awareness about both the foundation and the company, and its employee volunteer engagement program.
Cobbs has more than 25 years of experience in the fields of journalism, public relations, and community engagement. Most recently, she worked at Transitions Homeless Center in Columbia, S.C., in the areas of fundraising and community outreach, coordinating activities for the 1,800 volunteers who served annually at the center and helping to raise more than $150,000 to support Transitions’ 260 clients.
The Allstar Charitable Foundation is financed by Allstar’s employees, which is then matched by the company annually. The foundation uses a significant portion of its annual budget to fund 10 regional charities, while other funds are donated to a national organization.
In 2019, it donated $25,000 to the Gary Sinise Foundation to support the Sinise Foundation’s Relieve & Resiliency Program, which uses strategic partnerships with other organizations to address the mental health needs of America’s service members, first responders and veterans. The Allstar Charitable Foundation also has a scholarship fund that is available for application to children of current Allstar employees who meet GPA and programmatic requirements.

With 26 offices and more than 15 companies across the country, it has 275 employees writing surety, commercial and personal lines insurance business.
