Brown & Brown of Detroit Teammates Support JDRF

Todd Piersol, Executive Vice President, is proud to announce that Brown & Brown of Detroit teammates raised $1,159 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation during the office’s second quarter Blue Jean Day fundraiser. Every Friday, the office’s 70+ employees have the option of wearing blue jeans to work, in exchange for a $5 donation to the non-profit of the quarter.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation envisions a world without type 1 diabetes. Their mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications.

Bernie Gallagher, our commercial department leader, nominated JDRF to be one of our jean day charities because the cause is close to her heart. She stated, “I have two sons with type 1 juvenile diabetes and one of our teammates has diabetes, along with 1.25 million Americans. There is no remission, there is no vacation, there is no cure, yet… so donating to this cause helps bring us one step closer to the day that my children and grandchildren will no longer suffer with this disease.”

For the third quarter of 2018, Brown & Brown of Detroit has chosen to raise money for the Detroit Children’s Choir. The Choir’s mission is to use the power of choral music education as a cultural platform to unite children of diverse backgrounds. They aim to provide experiences through choral music education that will enrich the lives of Metro Detroit’s youth and communities, ultimately shaping confident, focused, and expressive leaders.
