Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union, IAFF Local 31, uses health insurance system to benefit important local area charity

(Tacoma, WA-March 16, 2015) Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union, IAFF Local 31, will direct a gift of $4,640.86 to Friends of American Lake Veterans Golf Course, from their LTD benefits consultant LBG Advisors.

The donated monies are a result of a policy that LBG Advisors has to not keep insurance carrier bonuses and instead donate them to local charities in the name of their clients. 

In this case Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union, IAFF Local 31, is able to benefit a well deserving organization, Friends of American Lake Veterans Golf Course; the nation’s only golf course designed specifically for the rehabilitation of wounded and disabled veterans.

Ryan Mudie, President at Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union (IAFF Local 31), “The Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union regularly seeks to make contributions in the community we serve. We have been given an opportunity to support those who have sacrificed so much for our great Nation. American Lake Veterans Golf Course is a place for wounded heroes to heal emotionally and physically. Simply put, we want them to know that we have their back, and we know they have ours.

Using a bonus provided by our insurance carrier seems like a fitting way to further benefit community partners like Friends of American Lake Veterans Golf Course.”

Ron Kirkpatrick, CEO of LBG Advisors issued the following statement, “We are excited to partner with exceptional clients like Tacoma Professional Firefighters Union to give to the local community and impactful organizations such as Friends of American Lake Veterans Golf Course. It is our policy to direct bonus monies and non-standard compensation structures from insurance carriers used by our clientele to local charities.  We feel this allows us to represent our client in the purest way while helping those in need.”
