OBGR’s San Antonio Team Donates to WINGS

Last October, the OneBeacon Government Risks San Antonio, TX team raised money for Women Involved in Nurturing, Giving and Sharing (WINGS), an organization that provides comprehensive breast cancer services to women in Central and South Texas who are uninsured.

As a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the OneBeacon office sold dress down/pink days for their colleagues to purchase. The OBGR team raised a total of $475, but with the support of the OneBeacon Charitable Trust, was able to donate $1,975 to the cause.

Great work OBGR San Antonio!
