Brown Thayer Shedd Earns $50,000 for Bowery Mission Women's Center in 8th Annual Chubb Charity Challenge

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 21, 2007) - Brown Thayer Shedd beat 44 teams to claim the Eighth Annual Chubb Charity Challenge Championship and a $50,000 donation to the charity of its choice. The Darien, CT, insurance agency's winnings will go to the Bowery Mission Women's Center, which offers homeless women in New York City the opportunity to achieve spiritual grounding, economic empowerment and emotional healing.

On November 5 and 6, winners of the 45 Chubb Charity Challenge regional golf tournaments in major cities across the United States and Canada competed for a charity purse of more than $560,000 at The Falls and Reflection Bay golf courses in Las Vegas. Through the charitable efforts of more than 1,600 agents and customers, Chubb was able to raise more than $1 million for charity during its 2007 tournaments.

"We are proud to host one of the largest charity golf tournaments in the insurance industry," said Thomas F. Motamed, vice chairman and chief operating officer of The Chubb Corporation. "With the $1 million raised during 2007, Chubb has helped to raise more than $6 million for charities across North America since 2000. We would like to thank all our agents and customers who volunteered their time and donated funds to make the 2007 tournaments a success."
