Berkshire Receives $50k Donation


Berkshire receives $50,000 donation from JLT Specialty USA after winning 19th Annual Chubb Charity Challenge


CANAAN, NY, Nov 5, 2018—Last week, JLT Specialty USA competed against forty-five teams from across the U.S and Canada in the Chubb Charity Challenge national tournament finals in Kiawah, SC. The foursome from JLT – winners of the White Plains/Albany, NY regional event – was crowned champions of the 19th annual tournament, and will present their winnings, a $50,000 check to Berkshire Farm Center & Services for Youth.

"Berkshire Farm Center & Services for Youth is a great not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families, and ensuring they are able to get the education they need," said Justin Riccio, Senior Vice President at JLT Specialty USA. "Winning this money for charity is one of the proudest moments we have had, and we are honored to donate to a cause that is committed to making a difference in New York State. We thank Chubb for hosting this event and creating the opportunity to give back to our communities."

This year, a total of 359 teams participated in the Chubb Charity Challenge, and more than $300,000 of the $900,000 raised has already been distributed to charities across the U.S. and Canada.

“Justin Riccio and JLT Specialty have been long time partners and supporters of our agency,” said Carlton Mitchell, Berkshire Interim President & CEO. “We cannot thank them enough for choosing Berkshire as their charity of choice.  This will surely make an impact on the children and families we serve.”
