The fundraising efforts of the BFIS Alumni Association over the past year have raised enough money to fund a scholarship worth $10,000, which was awarded to Zoe Wright at the BFIS Awards Reception on July 18th.

The BFIS said, “Of particular note was the huge success of the Denim Day they organized in May which alone raised almost $9,500! The companies who took part were Allied World, Arch Insurance, Argo, Argus, Ariel Re, Aspen, BMA, BF&M, Chubb, Colonial, Deloitte, Expertise, Hamilton Re, Hiscox, Partner Re, RenaissanceRe, Validus, XL Catlin and Zurich.

Co-Chair of the BFIS Alumni Committee, Donita Stevens, said how grateful they were to all participating companies and noted that several companies also gave matching donations which was very much appreciated. She said the Committee hoped to be able to raise money in future years to continue to fund an annual scholarship
