Conference Cause – PLUS Foundation Helps an Atlanta Charity

Daniel Auslander, RPLU of V3 Insurance Partners and current PLUS Foundation Board Member wrote the following recap of the Foundation’s 2017 Conference Cause initiative. Enjoy the recap and photos, and please consider donating to this fantastic cause.

PLUS members care.  PLUS Foundation corporate sponsors care.  And through the PLUS Foundation we give back.

It’s really not complicated.  For a few hours each year before the PLUS Conference begins a group of dedicated volunteers makes an effort to help people in need.  In Atlanta this year the PLUS Foundation, in partnership with a local not-for-profit organization, Lekotek, hosted a Halloween party for physically and mentally challenged children – many of whom had never attended a Halloween party before.

It was a wonderful event.  The room at our host hotel was filled with the happy faces of children and their families.  And the volunteers had a great time too!  It was obvious to every one in the room that it feels really good to give back – and at the same time provides a powerful reminder to us all of how truly fortunate and blessed we are.

The goal is simple – to make the host community better off than before when we arrived for the Conference – by making a difference to a local charity.  And for the 14th straight year the PLUS Foundation accomplished the mission.  Over the years the Foundation has donated more than $500,000 to local not-for-profit organizations.

Telling my family about Conference Cause – I was proud of the PLUS Foundation, PLUS, and its members.  It felt great to share our accomplishments.  We do not often have the opportunity boast about the insurance and professional liability sector – but there is no doubt in my mind that what we accomplished was special.

PLUS Foundation president Chuck Brady presented a check to Lekotek in Atlanta, but we are hoping to add our industry’s financial support of this great organization and we need your help! Make a donation for Lekotek today via the PLUS Foundation website.

You can help us make a difference to families with special needs.  From what we saw at the party I know they will be grateful for your gift.

The professional liability industry has given us all so much – a career, financial resources, business connections, friends and limitless opportunities.  The PLUS Foundation offers an easy way to give back.

Thank you for caring.
