Nearly 100 of Combined Insurance’s employees, vendors, and guests attended the charity golf outing, held at Old Orchard Country Club in Mount Prospect.
“Combined Insurance colleagues enjoyed a beautiful day of golf and goodwill to support USO of Illinois and all the terrific work they do for our Active Duty, Guard and Reserve military and their families,” said Combined Insurance vice-president of sales development and military programs Bob Wiedower. “I am so proud that we were able to raise so much money in one day.”
Wiedower has served 22 years in the United States Marine Corps, from which he retired as a Squadron Commanding Officer. He also sits on USO of Illinois’ board of directors.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support of Combined Insurance and Bob Wiedower’s time, energy and passion as a board member,” USO of Illinois president and CEO Alison Ruble said during the event. “We salute our partners at Combined Insurance for helping us make a difference in the lives of service members and their families.”
Combined Insurance announced earlier this year that it had plans to hire 2,000 more veterans by the end of 2019 as part of its veteran recruitment program. Under the program, which started in 2010, Combined Insurance has hired 4,200 veterans and their family members since 2013.
