This week, BBS was proud to donate two Flyers tickets and a parking pass to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House for use in their PRMH Night at the Flyers event on November 5, 2019.

BBS’ Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement Committee, pictured here and led by Member Michele E. Turner, is excited for its service year ahead! The goal of the committee is to increase engagement in the communities in which we live and work through meaningful service, and to promote and sustain a diverse and inclusive work environment.

Lise Luborsky recently filed an amicus brief in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on behalf of the Pennsylvania Defense Institute, the Insurance Federation of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Association of Defense Counsel. The issue is whether the insured’s initial waiver of stacking for underinsured motorist coverage under the Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law remains in effect, or whether a new waiver is required when the UIM limits are increased. The issue was certified to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court by the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. You can read the brief by clicking here.
Kelly L. Raymond and her husband (pictured here) created a small nonprofit call Thanksgiving Community Brunch some years ago. This year was the 6th year the Brunch took place and it was hosted at St. Michael's Church in Fishtown. The Brunch provides meals to the homeless, veterans, elderly or anyone in the community that could use a gourmet Thanksgiving meal and fellowship on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The motto is "No one should be alone or hungry". This year, they fed around 500 people and 2 homeless shelters. The meal was cooked by Starr Catering. They also provided care packages, including hygiene products, hats, gloves and socks for around 300 people.
