Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products , and a Chubb company, hosted its annual charity golf outing on September 19 and raised $19,500 to benefit USO of Illinois.
Nearly 100 Combined Insurance employees, vendors and guests came together at Old Orchard Country Club in Mount Prospect to golf and give back. The event kicked off with the presentation of colors by Marine Recruiting Station Chicago and the singing of our national anthem by Alleece Baker, as well as remarks from Alison Ruble, President and CEO of USO of Illinois.
“Combined Insurance colleagues enjoyed a beautiful day of golf and goodwill to support USO of Illinois and all the terrific work they do for our Active Duty, Guard and Reserve military and their families,” said Bob Wiedower, Vice President of Sales Development and Military Programs for Combined Insurance. “I am so proud that we were able to raise so much money in one day.”
Wiedower is a decorated veteran, having served 22 years in the United States Marine Corps, where he retired as a Squadron Commanding Officer. He also sits on the Board of Directors for USO of Illinois.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support of Combined Insurance and Bob Wiedower’s time, energy and passion as a board member,” Ruble said. “We salute our partners at Combined Insurance for helping us make a difference in the lives of service members and their families.”
Thank you to Combined Insurance and Bob Weidower for their generosity.
