Farm Bureau Insurance Surpasses Million-Dollar Fundraising Mark
Published: 16 December 2014
In its third year as the statewide partner of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Farm Bureau Insurance of Tennessee surpassed the million-dollar fundraising mark. In 2014 company representatives made bigger and bolder strides than ever, contributing to a variety of fundraising efforts including bake sales, Making Strides walks and more than 32,000 pink Farmer Charlie hats sold.
The centerpiece of the 2014 campaign was 34 “Pink Out” high school football games hosted by Farm Bureau Insurance agencies across Tennessee. The games—played from the end of August through October—generated almost $300,000, uniting communities across the state to honor breast cancer survivors and educating people about the disease.
“To have raised more than $1,000,000 to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in only three years is truly unbelievable. This was made possible by the tireless efforts and generosity of Farm Bureau Insurance representatives. These proceeds will help the American Cancer Society seek better ways to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing this disease. I couldn’t be more proud of our company,” said Farm Bureau Insurance CEO Sonny Scoggins.
