Now in its 20th Year, the 42-Tournament Series Will Top the $16 Million Mark in Charitable Giving
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J., May 22, 2019 /CNW/ -- Chubb has kicked off its 20th annual Chubb Charity Challenge tournament season. Hosted by Chubb branch offices, the series of 42 local golf tournaments being held between May and September of this year invites agents, brokers and clients to events throughout North America. All events are designed to raise money for charities, many within each of the tournament's respective localities, with the sum raised across all 2019 events expected to approach $1 million.
Competing on behalf of their selected charities, the winning foursome from each regional tournament advances to the finals tournament, which will be held this September 22-25 at The American Club in Kohler, WI. There, all teams will win money for their charity of choice. The amount each team wins depends on where they finish among the field of 42 teams upon conclusion of the two-day finals tournament, where the grand prize for the winning team is $50,000.
"Chubb is excited to kick-off the 2019 Chubb Charity Challenge," said Chris Maleno, Division President, Chubb North America Field Operations. "This annual tradition is near and dear to us, as it allows us the opportunity to give back to worthy causes within the communities where we live, work and serve. So as we celebrate its 20th anniversary, we acknowledge and applaud all within our network of brokers and agents throughout North America who have participated in the Chubb Charity Challenge over the last two decades."
Between 2000 and 2018, more than 5,200 teams have participated in the Chubb Charity Challenge, raising nearly $16 million for charity collectively, including more than $900,000 in 2018. Last year's winning team was from JLT Specialty USA from the White Plains/Albany, NY regional tournament. With that win, they were able to present a $50,000 check to Berkshire Farm Center & Services for Youth of Canaan, NY.
