Danberry’s 1st Annual Community Benefits Event was held June 21st at The National Museum of The Great Lakes. The Community Benefit Program was introduced in 2016 to increase and highlight Danberry members individual efforts in giving back to our community.
If at least one hour a year is given back an invitation is extended to an annual recognition event. At the event, 3 members of the Danberry Family are selected by an external panel for their outstanding contributions. $1000, $500 and $250 will be awarded to the charities or activities of the 3 selectees.
The evening began with agents entering the museum and being greeted by three oversized checks excitedly awaiting the award ceremony to be held later that evening. Guests could take in the sites of the museum, tour the James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship, grab a bite of the catered Mancy’s Steakhouse cuisine, pick up a cocktail at the bar, and overall enjoy the atmosphere of The National Museum of the Great Lakes!
At 6pm guests gathered around to hear Lynn Fruth, Danberry’s CEO briefly speak of the amazing members of our Danberry Family that made this event possible by donating their time to so many wonderful causes in the area!
Todd Schenkenberger out of our Westgate Office took first place and won a $1,000 to be donated to the charity of his choice. Victoria Valle out of our Briarfield Office took second place winning a $500 contribution to her selected charity, and another Briarfield Agent, Rick Popiolek took third winning a $250 donation to his charity of choice.
This year’s event was a huge success with 77 Danberry Members contributing more than 2,865 hours and supporting 91 organizations! We are proud to have every one of you on our team, let’s make the second Annual Community Benefit Event to be held in 2018 even more successful than the first, thank you!
