Giving back together: Insurance industry attends IICF West’s Horizon Award Gala

by | Apr 19, 2022 | Charitable Trust, Insurance Industry Efforts

The Intact Charitable Trust was pleased to sponsor the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s (IICF) Horizon Award Gala, earlier this month.

Intact employees had the opportunity to attend the gala held at The Majestic Downtown in Los Angeles, and meet fellow industry colleagues in support of nonprofits that are addressing some of the most challenging needs in our communities.

The event was hosted by IICF’s Western Division to celebrate the industry’s legacy of collaboration and commitment to giving back. Eric J. Andersen, President of Aon, received this year’s award for his demonstrated work in philanthropy and leadership. Learn more at IICF’s website.

Intact’s sponsorship will be directed back to the IICF Community Grants Program – that raised more than $300,000 at the event – which supports regional charities focused on children at risk, education and human services.

Check out the below picture of Intact’s Melissa Goto, Martin Ogden, Peter Burt and Aaron Belair, with a few industry colleagues. Martin also served on the event’s planning committee.
