WalkerHughes Insurance Names Alzheimer's Association, Greater Indiana Chapter 'Charity of the Quarter'

9/7/2023 | Stephanie Marsh

We are excited to announce that WalkerHughes Insurance is proudly partnering with the Alzheimer Association, Greater Indiana Chapter as our agency's ‘Charity of the Quarter’ in Quarter 3 of 2023. 

About our Referral Program

At WalkerHughes Insurance, there is no higher compliment than a referral. A referral indicates that we have met the mark for our customers and that they are satisfied with the service provided. We are pleased when our customers trust us enough to recommend us to those closest to them. We know how important friends and family members are, and we promise to treat yours as if they were our own! 

For every customer referring friends and family members that complete a no-obligation insurance review, we will send you a $5 coffee e-gift card as a token of our appreciation! As part of our referral program, we will also make a matching $5 donation to our agency’s ‘Charity of the Quarter’. The purpose of this program is to help organizations close to the hearts of our employees while providing our customers the opportunity to not only receive a coffee on us, but to also help a worthy cause by referring their friends and family. In addition, this also gives us the opportunity to promote awareness of these organizations in our communities through our online presence. 

Why the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Indiana Chapter?

The Alzheimer's Association, Greater Indiana Chapter was nominated by WalkerHughes team members Carol Winkel and Pam Hecklinski as our agency’s Charity of the Quarter. Carol is a Personal Lines Account Manager in our Indianapolis office and Pam is the Vice President of our SBU division. Both have a personal connection to the organization.
