Local New Jersey charities received $25,000 in donations from the event. The producers had a wonderful time and again supported

It was thought that combining an event for Chubb's agents and their chosen charities would benefit Chubb, the producers and

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 2012 Challenges exceeded everyone's expectations - The events together consisted of more than 5,300 teams from
the U.S. and Canada and collectively raised nearly $11,000,000 for various charities. Many fine charities benefited from these
tournaments and producers and clients alike continue to comment on our effort to reinvest in the communities we work in.
As we begin to prepare for the 14th annual Challenge in 2013 at The Resort at Pelican Hill, we are hopeful that we will continue
