I would like to take the opportunity to thank every agent and employee who contributed to our Hurricane Katrina Fundraiser. When I asked our agents and staff to participate in this fundraiser, I knew we would be making history. The total amount donated by both agents and employees was $43,560.00. On September 30, 2005, I personally delivered a check to the Los Angeles American Red Cross Chapter from the AIA companies in the amount of $43,560.00 along with all of your checks, for a total of $87,120.00 making this, by far, the largest ever charitable donation by the bail bond industry.
Our network of agents proved once again that we are the finest group of agents in the country. Thank you all for your support and those affected by the disaster, please do not hesitate to contact me should you need any assistance.
