Trusted Choice® Independent Agents of North Carolina to sponsor Walk for Wishes across the state


September 24, 2014

The Trusted Choice independent insurance agents of North Carolina are teaming up with both Make-A-Wish chapters in the state to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Through a state-wide sponsorship, Trusted Choice and the Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina (IIANC) will be a key supporter of Walk for Wishes at four community events during October and November.   

This $15,000 contribution is part of Trusted Choice’s 2014 national commitment of more than $530,000 that helps local chapters throughout the country grant more wishes.

Walk for Wishes is a signature Make-A-Wish program, bringing grassroots fund-raising support to local communities.  The fall schedule in North Carolina kicks off in Wilmington on Sunday, October 12th, followed by Asheville (Saturday, November 1st), Charlotte (Saturday, November 8th), and Winston-Salem (Saturday, November 15th).

“It is a privilege to partner with both Make-A-Wish chapters in North Carolina to help grant the wishes of deserving children. This is a great opportunity for our Trusted Choice members to come together in support of a worthy cause and give back to their local community,” said Stuart Powell, Interim IIANC CEO.

As part of its alliance, Trusted Choice, the largest association of independent insurance agents and brokers nationwide, has raised over $1.5 million dollars nationwide for Make-A-Wish since 2011.

We are proud to support their mission to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”
