Chubb Charity Challenge 2017

Forty-five local branches participated in tournaments across five months, full of foursomes determined to win for their charity of choice. Only one team from each tournament made it to the finals in November at The Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport, California. Everyone was a winner, though, in the Chubb Charity Challenge.

The Comradery

How the Challenge Works

Our broker and agent friends and clients join with our local staff around North America to enjoy a day on the course dedicated to fun and philanthropy. At least five foursomes must play in each local event, each choosing their own charity to play for. The winner earns the trip to the finals to play for $50,000.

The Tradition

On a beautiful October day in 1996, Chubb's Murray Hill office hosted the first Chubb Charity Challenge for twenty-five producers at New Jersey's Metedeconk Golf Club. Local New Jersey charities received $25,000 in donations from the event. The producers had a wonderful time and again supported a New Jersey Charity Challenge in 1997 and again in 1998.

It was thought that combining an event for Chubb's agents and their chosen charities would benefit Chubb, the producers and the community. The thankful letters from numerous charities that benefited from unexpected donations coupled with the producers' enthusiastic support of what Chubb was trying to do was proof that the idea was sound.

In 1999, Chubb's Northern Zone decided to expand on the original Challenge concept. Ten branches held local qualifying events that had foursomes from at least five producers as participants. The winning foursome from each branch was then invited to attend the Zone's "Tournament of Champions" at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. Those ten teams played for a total purse of $50,000.

The 2000 to 2016 Challenges exceeded everyone's expectations. As we continue to prepare for the 18th annual Challenge in 2017, we are hopeful that we will continue the momentum. Good luck and let the games go on!
