The Jackson Association of Health Underwriters Raises Money for Palmer Home for Children
The Jackson Association of Health Underwriters hosted their 19th Annual Golf Tournament on May 4, 2015 at Lake Caroline Golf Club. What began as a tool to raise funds for the young organization has since broadened its reach to offer scholarships to Mississippi students majoring in insurance — and most recently to raise money for Palmer Home for Children.
“I was introduced to Palmer Home as a client of BlueCross BlueShield of Mississippi,” said Matthew Brinson, account manager for BlueCross BlueShield. “We knew we wanted to do something [this year] to help kids and Palmer Home came to my mind.” When Brinson was approached by Elizabeth Bailey, president of JAHU, and asked to think of an organization that could benefit from the tournament, Brinson suggested immediately Palmer Home.
This year’s tournament featured a 4-man scramble format, which requires each of the four team members to tee off on each hole, decide which tee spot they like best, and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker. Twelve teams participated in the event. At the conclusion of the tournament, Brinson and Bailey presented Palmer Home with a check for $1,500!
Brinson says Palmer Home is an organization he believes in wholeheartedly. “I am thankful and appreciate that they not only provide a home, food, and clothing for these kids who have had a rough start, but that they teach them that God loves and cares for them,” he said.
Palmer Home supporters like The Jackson Association of Health Underwriters play a major role in restoring the lives of children. Their generosity is directly impacting the generation of the future. We are so appreciative of their support!
