People’s Trust Insurance, a Florida-based home insurance carrier, is proud to be a sponsor of the Women in Distress 13th Annual Women’s Starfish Luncheon Journey to Empowerment. The event will honor members of the community that have made a significant contribution to improve the lives of survivors of domestic violence. The event will be held on May 9, 2019 at the Signature Grand Hotel in Davie, Florida and include more than 500 business and community leaders all with the same goal in mind, to help bring awareness and raise necessary funds for this organization.  

Women in Distress is a nationally accredited domestic violence center that provides safe shelter, crisis intervention resources, and raises community awareness through intervention, education, and advocacy.

Over the past several years, People’s Trust Insurance has partnered with Women in Distress each holiday season to collect toys for the children in their shelter over the holiday time and has also donated hundreds of pillows and kids pillow cases called Cuddle Covers.

Irina Schaeffer, Executive Vice President of People’s Trust Insurance Company said, “We’re proud to be able to help raise much needed funds to support the programs and services provided to women and children that are seeking help, hope, and a second chance.” She added, “Broward County is our home, and this is our community. We are here to help make a difference anyway we can.”

All proceeds from the Starfish Luncheon will benefit Women in Distress and help them continue to provide critical services to families affected by domestic violence.
