‘Contest Winner Donates K to Sarasota Cancer Foundation’

June 4, 2024 | by The Jeuns

CBIZ Insurance Services of Sarasota recently raised ,000 to support families of children battling brain and spinal cord cancer, with half of the funds coming from social media support.

Initially, CBIZ Insurance was granted ,000 through Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance’s 2024 Make More Happen program, recognizing the company’s volunteerism. They had the chance to raise an additional ,000 by garnering the most votes on a micro-site created for selected companies. With over 1,300 votes, CBIZ Insurance emerged as the winner and received the extra ,000 for their donation.

The ,000 donation will now benefit the Payton Wright Foundation, which assists families of children with cancer by covering expenses like utilities and rent. Patrick Wright, vice president of CBIZ Insurance Services, established the foundation in honor of his daughter, Payton Wright, who lost her battle with a rare form of brain cancer in 2007.

Patrick Wright expressed his gratitude, stating, “The collective support from CBIZ Insurance Services has allowed us to support dozens of families through the hardest time in their lives. Payton would be so proud.”
