Gaudreau Group donates $2,500 to Baystate Health Foundation
The Gaudreau Group donated $2,500 to the Baystate Health Foundation to support men’s health initiatives. Several members of the Gaudreau team grew beards for No-Shave November to raise awareness of men’s health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. They treated themselves to an old-fashioned hot towel shave at Tony’s Famous Barber Shop in Springfield after their campaign was completed.
“We had a lot of fun raising awareness for this very serious issue. Each time we met with a client who commented on our beards, we took it as an opportunity to tell them about our work to encourage men to take care of themselves and be healthy,” said Jules Gaudreau, President of The Gaudreau Group.
According to the Movember Foundation, 73 American men will die every day from prostate cancer, and testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged 15-34 years.
Founded in 1921 and headquartered in Wilbraham, The Gaudreau Group is a fourth generation, family owned independent Insurance, Employee Benefits and Financial Services firm which insures over 6,000 businesses and families in 14 states. Their team is comprised of 30 professionals, including one of the largest Employee Benefits divisions in the region.
