When insurance professionals and their guests from Los Angeles and Orange County convened at Dove Canyon Country Club on Oct. 14, they not only had a great day of playing golf, but they raised another $70,000 for their non-profit organization – Insuring the Children.
The event is one of the two major fund-raising dates held each year in Southern California by the insurance industry. Nearly 100 golfers and guests were recruited and played at a sponsored golf event to network and raise monies to fund child abuse and neglect organizations in Southern California. More than 95 percent of the proceeds collected from this event go directly into the fund of this outstanding organization.
Howard Mead, chairperson of the event remarked, “This is a very popular, annual event for the insurance industry. Not only do we network with insurance carriers and agents, but we’re actually contributing to an organization that is very near and dear to all of us. What better use of our monies and time than investing in our children and keeping them safe?”
Insuring the Children is a non-profit organization created by industry leaders with the goal of supporting child abuse prevention programs and raising awareness of child abuse and neglect. Since its inception in 1994, ITC has raised more than $800,000 to assist child abuse prevention centers. There are chapters throughout California in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, and in the Midwest.
