OneBeacon Supports 11th Annual Nine and W.I.N.E Golf Outing

Recently, OneBeacon Technology and International Marine Underwriters sponsored the 11th annual Nine and W.I.N.E Golf Outing in Stow, MA, through the OneBeacon Charitable Trust. Women in Insurance in New England (W.I.N.E) hosts the golf event each year in support of the Women’s Lunch Place, a day shelter serving hot meals to homeless women in the greater Boston area.

In addition to golfing, attendees entered to win raffle prizes and participated in a silent auction and wine tastings throughout the day. Because of OneBeacon’s continued support over the years, the event created a special sponsor category and our team received special recognition during the awards presentation.

OBTI Supports United Way

Recently, members from our OneBeacon Technology team, Christine Leung, Leslie Willis-Mazes, Angela Martin and Roger Loftis, participated in the 8th Annual Disc Golf Tournament & Business Appreciation Luncheon in Salisbury, MD.

It was a fantastic day networking with our partners and supporting a good cause. Check out a few photos from the event!

OBTI Volunteers at Alcatraz

Recently, members of OneBeacon Technology’s Northwest regional team – Marty Ogden, Aaron Belair, Janet Pablo, and Melissa Goto – participated in and sponsored Lockton’s “Escape to Wellness” event at Alcatraz in San Francisco.

Our team, along with Lockton and its clients, volunteered in the gardens of the historic property, raking, weeding and cutting back blackberry bushes. Like many Lockton events, this one was aimed at supporting employee and client wellness. All volunteers were able to get outside, enjoy the fresh air and get their hands dirty in support of a good cause! Additionally, volunteers received a tour of Alcatraz, once the work was complete.
