USI’s 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Wade Warden, LUK, Inc. rep, Terri Ann Kane, USI rep at the USI 6th Annual Charity Golf TournamentEvery year USI Insurance Services gives back to charities and supports its community in the New England area. Berkley Human Services was proud to be invited to participate in USI’s 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament to support nonprofits, some of which we insure, in areas where some of our employees live and work. In 2018, 10 nonprofits from Maine to Connecticut received donations from this tournament. This year’s tournament raised thousands of dollars, all of which will support local nonprofits in the New England area.

Representing Berkley Human Services, Terri Ann Kane and Wade Warden were joined by Mike Roberts of L.U.K. Crisis Center, Inc. (LUK, Inc.), an insured nonprofit of Berkley Human Services, and Dave Ferriero of USI Insurance Services for their golf foursome.

David Ferriero, part of the Human & Social Services Practice Group at USI Insurance Services commented on the event, “USI’s 6th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was once again a huge success! The weather turned out perfect and all of the attendees shared in helping to raise thousands of dollars for local organizations. We are fortunate and proud to have strong relationships with so many partners who seek to make positive change and contributions to our local communities! On behalf of USI, thank you all for supporting and helping to make this year’s event such a success!”
