Golf Tournament Nets $10,000 for Firefighters’ Burn Fund
The Red River Mutual Golf Invitational held on June 30, 2010 at Pine Ridge Golf Course, raised $5,000 for the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund through a $30/donation from each player. Red River Mutual then matched the donation for a cheque presentation of $10,000 to Martin Johnson, Chairman of the Firefighters Burn Fund. Martin said “we were thinking the amount would be around $3,000, the cheque for $10,000 was a great surprise”
Red River Mutual also announced that it is entering a longer term agreement with the Burn Fund to sponsor fire safety trailers across the province. VP of Sales and Marketing, Chad Friesen said “This is an exciting time to be associated with Red River Mutual. Brokers, policyholders, and our staff are responding very positively to our new mission to excemplify the “Modern Mutual”. Part of that mission includes our investment in loss prevention. We believe an insurance company should work to protect customers from loss rather than just dealing with a loss when it occurs. We look to differentiate Red River Mutual (and our brokers) from the industry as the regional partner that cares first about the safety of it’s policyholders. We look forward to releasing more components to our loss prevention initiative over the next 12-18 months”.
