Here Comes the Sun

With spring fever definitely in the air, members of the greater Boston insurance industry recently gathered to help support the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF). This nonprofit established a New England presence three years ago and now includes OneBeacon representation on its Board. The group coordinates area volunteer efforts and awards grants to worthy local nonprofits. Two fundraising events as well as donations by member companies are the sole means for funding this community giving.

On Monday, April 6, roughly 200 insurance professionals gathered at the Hard Rock Café to network, listen to live music and bid on a variety of auction items. Over the course of the evening, $20,000 was raised to support Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay and Junior Achievement of Northern New England. Members of OneBeacon’s Boston-area team were pleased to join with industry friends and colleagues to support neighbors in need– and celebrate the end of a long winter.
