Chubb Charity Challenge raises $1m for US and Canadian charities

Lloyd Sadd Insurance Brokers and IMA Select tied for first place in the 20th annual Chubb Charity Challenge tournament finals from September 22 to 25 and were crowned champions of the annual event.

Forty-five teams, representing the winners of regional golf events held throughout North America last year, competed in the tournament, held at The American Club in Kohler, WI.

The winners were playing on behalf of  Little Warriors, a child sex abuse charity, and the  Hillcrest Ministries of MidAmerica, a homelessness charity, respectively. Each received a cheque for $50,000.

In total, more than 300 teams participated in the 2019 Chubb Charity Challenge, raising nearly $1 million for charities across the US and Canada.

Chris Maleno, division president, Chubb North America field operations, said the event underscores the re/insurer’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which it operates.

"As we celebrate its 20th anniversary, Chubb recognizes and thanks our network of brokers and agents that has participated in the Chubb Charity Challenge over the last two decades and contributed to its success – raising nearly $17 million to-date for worthy causes throughout North America," he said.

T. Marshall Sadd, executive chairman of Lloyd Sadd, said: “It is incredibly rewarding for our company to win $50,000 for a charity that is doing so much good within our community, and we are so appreciative of Chubb for this opportunity."

Jason Bottorf, Kansas market leader for IMA Select, added: "Words cannot describe how proud and honored we are to be able to deliver a check for $50,000 to this worthy cause. We are so thankful to Chubb for hosting this event and creating this platform for us to give back to our community.”
