Burlington, N.C. – On Monday, July 23, McMaster Children’s Hospital in the Canadian Province of Ontario will receive a check for more than $100,000 to purchase equipment for its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
The gift will come thanks in part to the contributions of National Agents Alliance, a Burlington company that assists insurance agents throughout the United States.
National Agents Alliance will serve as the lead sponsor of the 9th annual Foresters Kids Classic Golf Tournament, which will be held Monday. The Burlington-based company is sending several people, including two Alamance County residents, to Toronto to participate in the event. Proceeds from the event will go to McMaster Children’s Hospital and a new program for young people in the Flemingdon Park community of Toronto.
National Agents Alliance provides life insurance coverage for middle-income Americans using products designed by a variety of top-rated insurance carriers, including Foresters, which is headquartered in Toronto.
“National Agents Alliance wants to be a great community partner, and the community stretches far beyond Burlington,” said Kurt Ward, NAA’s director of communication and one of the golfers at next week’s tournament. “This tournament provides us with an opportunity to support our friends at Foresters and to support a charity that is dear to both of our hearts, the Children’s Miracle Network.”
McMaster is a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. National Agents Alliance has previously assisted with fundraising events for other CMN hospitals, including Duke Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Medical Center of Dayton, Ohio.
Over the past eight years, Foresters’ annual golf event has raised more than $800,000 for Children’s Miracle Network.
Joining Ward on the golf course will be NAA President and CEO Andy Albright, a Burlington native. Other National Agents Alliance participants in the event include agency managers Patrick Connors (Mason, OH), Stephen Davies (Asheville, N.C.), Glenn Davies (Asheville, N.C.), Adam Katz (Dunn, N.C.) and Kyle Winebrenner (Cabot, Ark.).
NHL star Eric Lindros will also participate in the golf tournament, playing with the lead foursome that includes Albright and Stephen Davies. Lindros is a six-time NHL All-Star and the league’s 1995 MVP.
National Agents Alliance is an insurance marketing organization that supports more than 6,000 independent life insurance agents nationwide.
