In a world where acts of kindness and generosity often go unnoticed, it’s crucial to shine a light on individuals who selflessly dedicate their time and resources to meaningful causes. Three exceptional insurance agents from Midwest Select Insurance Group (MSIG) have not only excelled in their professional endeavors but have also extended their support and compassion to various causes, leaving an indelible mark in their communities.

Mario Racanelli – Championing the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Medicare supplements insurance agent, Mario Racanelli, stood as a beacon of support at Mz Mona’s Rock’n For A Cure fundraiser, held at The Red Mixer in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The event aimed to raise funds for breast cancer research, a cause close to Mario’s heart due to his personal connection—his very close friend’s battle with the disease. Mario’s commitment to this cause goes beyond mere sponsorship; he actively participates in events and volunteers his time to support the battle against breast cancer. Alongside numerous other individual and corporate sponsors like Apex Engineering, Red Cedar Steel, and Prestige Kia, Mario’s dedication underscores the significance of community involvement in fighting such critical health issues.

Jason Phillips – Taking a Stand Against Bullying

Business insurance agent, Jason Phillips, showed his commitment to making the Eau Claire area a better place for children by sponsoring an anti-bullying event organized by The Gilbert Brown Foundation. Jason, along with his family, attended the event where former Green Bay Packers football players, including Gilbert Brown, Santana Dotson, and Andre Rison, spoke out against bullying and signed autographs.
