From all of us at OneBeacon, we’re wishing you a safe and happy holiday! This time of year is all about giving back and spreading joy. In honor of that, the OneBeacon Charitable Trust is donating $50,000 to nonprofits important to our employees and their communities this holiday.
OneBeacon Inland Marine recently participated in and sponsored the IMA Foundation’s Kansas City Pickleball event. This year, the event raised $25,000, with proceeds going to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City.
Inland Marine’s Lucas Hockenberry and Molly Miller competed in the tournament, finishing 3-3. We are proud to have participated in the event and especially to contribute to a worthy cause by being the Pickle Juice Sponsor!
