American Safety Insurance raised over $66,000 for the America Red Cross at its Eighth Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held September 29, 2011.
The funds were raised through player entry fees, sponsorships, mulligan and raffle ticket sales, as well as an ASI company match. Gold sponsors included Engle Martin, Cozen O’Connor, Fields Howell LLP, and NIIT Technologies.
“Once again, the day was a huge success because of the generosity of our employees, vendors, customers and business partners, especially given the current economic conditions,” said Stephen R. Crim, CEO of ASI and a participant in the tournament, “Our employees enjoy raising money for great causes, and I am pleased that we were able to meet our fundraising goals for the eighth straight year.”
