CMW Insurance - Generous Supporters, Again!

Once again, CMW Insurance has been incredibly generous to the Deaf Children's Society. Last year, $10,000 was raised at the CMW Charity Golf Tournament. This year, the event was bigger and better, and CMW topped their previous donation to DCS by $2,500. This is not surprising, as CMW staff and administration have a long history of setting goals and not only meeting them but exceding them.

The Deaf Children's Society thanks CMW Insurance and their business partners for this year's donation of $12,500.
