 Company’s annual fundraiser benefits SOS Children’s Village and Moving in the Spirit

ATLANTA, Aug. 4, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broadspire®, a leading global third-party administrator of workers compensation claims, liability claims and medical management services, has donated $100,000 to the SOS Children’s Village – Florida and $75,000 to Moving in the Spirit in Georgia. The funds were raised during the Company’s 2016 Charity Golf Tournament.

SOS Children’s Villages – Florida is a foster care neighborhood in Coconut Creek, Fla., with 12 houses that are home to up to 75 boys and girls who have been removed from their families due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. Moving in the Spirit is a nationally recognized youth development program that uses the art of dance to positively transform the lives of children and teens in Atlanta.

Combining sports, fellowship and business networking, Broadspire’s sixth-annual tournament hosted close to 100 clients, brokers, carriers, business partners and Company management to a day on the links of the 18-hole championship golf course of the Turnberry Isle in Aventura, Fla. Activities also included a welcome reception the evening before the tournament, as well as a lunch and silent auction at the conclusion of the event.

“Every year we host this event, I witness how generous our clients, vendors and partners are toward organizations that help positively influence so many children’s lives,” said Broadspire President and CEO Danielle Lisenbey. “It’s a wonderful way to spend the day while raising funds to provide financial support to children in need, and I’m thankful for everyone who made these contributions possible.”
  
Lisenbey recently presented a $75,000 donation to Moving in the Spirit, while Neil Lentine, chief operating officer, bestowed a check for $100,000 to SOS Children’s Village executives. Throughout the past six years, Broadspire has raised more than $600,000 to help the children in the SOS Children’s Village – Florida. This is the second year Broadspire supported Moving in the Spirit.

Broadspire began its partnership with the SOS Children’s Village as a part of Crawford & Company’s 2009 Global Day of Service-an annual event when employees worldwide engage in community service. Since then, Broadspire has helped with several fundraisers and volunteer opportunities for the SOS Children’s Village in addition to hosting the golf tournament.
