Don't Be A Party Pooper...Get Your Special Event Coverage Today!

Can't you feel it?  Summer is right around the corner! Of course, summer means sunshine, suntans (or sunburns!), vacations, lazy weekends and special events.

It is a popular time for many non-profit, for-profit, social service, human service or child welfare organizations to hold their annual fundraisers/benefits, community events, or company picnics during this time of year. But, did you know, the insurance program you have in place for your organization may or may not cover you for unexpected incidents/accidents that may occur during these special events?  There are some important liabilites and risks that each organization must consider and understand before an event takes place.

Knowing Your Risks:

People:  It is important that all individuals involved in, around or at the event are protected and safe.  This could involve volunteers, event participants, vendors, hired staff or performers.  Every event should have a crowd control plan, and emergency and security services readily available.       

Venue:  Is the size of the venue adequate for all attendees?  Is there enough parking space?  Are there enough restrooms and easy access to these facilities?  Does the venue have a capacity limit?  These are all great questions to ask yourself when considering your risks and exposures.

Contacts:  It is not uncommon for a contract to be drawn with a third party and/or vendors.  It must provide clear details about dates, times, location and the nature of the event.  It must also include clear terms on cancellations, payments, insurance and additional services.

Contact Hawley & Associates today about your upcoming event!

"Ditch The Duds"- Support Orphans This Easter!

How much will your family spend on new clothes for Easter Sunday? Did you know for the cost of your Easter clothes you could provide food and clothes to an orphan in need? We have come across a wonderful cause and want to share!
Our client, New Beginnings, a domestic/international adoption agency is holding an amazing campaign to support orphans in Nepal!
This Easter we’re challenging you to “Ditch the Duds”. That’s right, forget the fancy clothes and wear a t-shirt supporting the Mercy Nepal orphanage instead. Sound a bit rouge for Easter Sunday morning? It is. But what better time to give to orphans and call attention to the plight of orphans than Easter Sunday?
For every Mangali t-shirt bought, $11 will be given to their orphanage in Nepal. They hope to raise $2,000 through this campaign.
By wearing a simple t-shirt instead of new clothes on Easter Sunday, you’ll be raising awareness of the need for orphan care throughout the world! Start the conversation now with your family, friends, Sunday School Classes, and church families to “Ditch the Duds” as a group this Easter. Help us help the orphans in need.
To order, just download the attached t-shirt order form and return it to New Beginnings. Please do not hesitate to call them with any questions or concerns at 662-842-6752.
P.S. The “Ditch the Duds” campaign is actually part of a larger movement called “Forget the Frock”. Check out their website (link to and ready Emily’s inspiring story of how one woman’s heart for orphans is raising awareness and money for orphans worldwide.
