Fodemski called on the insurance industry to support the programs of Mustard Seed Ranch, a charitable nonprofit organization that provides equine assisted therapy and life-experience programs to help youths break the cycle of abuse, and reestablish relationships and trust in their lives. The organization fills a critical need for therapeutic programs that are often lacking in foster care and group home settings.

Industry executives from companies including Arch Insurance Group, Burnham Benefits Insurance Services, CRC Insurance Services, Inc.(TM) Ullico Casualty, Professional Warranty Service Corporation, and Zurich Financial Services Group, joined Fodemski in taking a stand against child abuse by participating in the golf event.

"We can no longer look the other way. It is our responsibility as a community to protect and care for these children so we can hopefully eliminate the destructive and lasting effects of child abuse on our society," explained Fodemski, who has chaired the Annual Golf For Youth Event for the past 4 years. "I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved with Mustard Seed Ranch as a board member and help support such an important cause."

As presenting sponsor for the past seven years, Lockton Insurance Brokers, LLC has contributed more than $100,000 to Mustard Seed Ranch. The company emphasizes its strong position on community involvement and is actively involved in more than 30 charitable organizations today.
