WiRe Silent Auction Raises $12,000 For PALS

December 16, 2016

Women in Reinsurance [WiRe] recently made a donation of $12,000 to support PALS, with the funds raised through a silent auction during their annual holiday social.

“WiRe provides educational, mentoring and networking opportunities for our members but we also strive to support the community through charitable efforts,” said Julia Mather, WiRe board member and head of the event committee.

“This fundraiser is yet another example of how women in our industry can come together and make a huge difference in the community within just a few short hours.”

More than three dozen businesses around the island donated prizes to support the auction. PALS representatives were also on hand and “sold more raffle tickets in a few short hours than they would normally sell during a full day in town.”

Zoe Kempe, a member of WiRe’s events committee and organizer of the auction, said, “We are extremely grateful to the many businesses in Bermuda who so generously donated items to the silent auction.

“It is a pleasure to see so many members of the community come together at this time of year to support a wonderful charity that plays such an important role in Bermuda.”
