Bala Cynwyd, PA (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

Philadelphia Insurance Companies executive team challenged its employees to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, with the incentive of donating $50 to the ALS Association for each employee who accepted the challenge. On Friday, August 22nd, 540 employees from PHLYs offices across the country filled up their buckets and dumped in the ice to answer the challenge.

We received emails from employees thanking us, as they had lost loved ones to this hideous disease, shared President and CEO Bob OLeary. I am extremely grateful to our employees who took part. The Ice Bucket Challenge was a fun way to engage our employees in raising money and awareness for ALS research.

Employees in California got creative due to an extreme drought in the state. They used bird seed in place of water to comply with local restrictions. PHLY is donating $27,000 to the ALS Association for the 540 employees who took the challenge. PHLY is donating another $3,000 to the ALS Association to match contributions already made by employees to support ALS related charities.

Philadelphia Insurance has donated more than $14 million to charitable organizations and missions since 1980. To learn more about the efforts of TEAMPHLY, visit
