Colonial Life donates $750 whenever South Carolina men’s basketball team scores 75 points at home

(Jan. 31, 2014) Donations to S.C. Center for Fathers and Families honor company’s 75th anniversary

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Jan. 31, 2014) — In recognition of its 75th anniversary, Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company will make a $750 charitable donation every time the University of South Carolina’s men’s basketball team scores 75 points in a home game at the Colonial Life Arena. The first donation was earned Wednesday night when Carolina beat Texas A&M in an 80-52 victory.

The company will donate these funds through the end of the season to the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families, the charity chosen by coach Frank Martin during last year’s Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge. This organization supports fatherhood programs across the state.

Since its founding in 1939, Colonial Life has grown to become a national leader in the employee benefits industry and a cornerstone of the Midlands community.

“We have a long history of helping America’s workers protect the vitally important things they’ve worked so hard to build,” said Colonial Life President & CEO Randy Horn. “Along the way, we’ve developed a reputation for innovation and excellence, for working to a higher standard to meet our customers’ needs. And we have an equally powerful reputation for making our community a better place to work and live by supporting programs such as the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families.”

Colonial Life will continue celebrating its 75th anniversary with gifts to the community by building a Habitat for Humanity home in March.
