Colwood insurance team fires up BBQ fundraiser for juvenile diabetes research

Community event takes place June 21 & 22 in front of Quality Foods in Royal Bay
On June 21 and 22, the team from Acera Insurance, formerly known as Megson FitzPatrick Insurance, will host a barbecue fundraiser for juvenile diabetes research at Quality Foods in Royal Bay.

The Acera Insurance team located in The Commons at Royal Bay is excited for their first anniversary, hosting a barbecue fundraiser in support of juvenile diabetes research and treatment.

On June 21 and 22, the long-time insurance broker, formerly known as Megson FitzPatrick Insurance, will host a barbecue fundraiser at Quality Foods in Royal Bay.

This long-standing initiative, which started at Westside Village 13 years ago, was inspired by a now-retired shareholder who lost their daughter to the disease in 2006.

Today celebrating the Colwood branch’s one-year anniversary, the team invites the community to stop by Quality Foods, where they’ll be grilling hotdogs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research.

“It’s a charity that’s really dear to our hearts because one of our team members lost a family member to the disease, and it hit all of us very hard. Through that experience, we all learned a lot about juvenile diabetes, and agree it’s a cause worth supporting. That is why we have hosted this fundraiser after all these years,” says Laura Bolster, Managing Director.

Acera Insurance’s commitment to community support is evident in their ongoing involvement in local initiatives and fundraisers. Over the years, the company has built a reputation not only for their insurance services but also for their dedication to making a positive impact in the communities they serve.

While the branch name has changed from Megson FitzPatrick Insurance, Colwood’s Acera Insurance team takes pride in continuing to provide clients with exceptional service while striving for excellence in all that they do.

Whether you need car, home, travel, tenant, equine, off-road vehicle, motorcycle, or strata deductible insurance, Acera Insurance experts are approachable and eager to help you protect the most valuable items and people in your life.

“We are more than just an insurance brokerage; we are a part of this community. Our clients are like family to us, and we want to do everything we can to support them, both through our services and our community efforts,” Bolster notes.
