Two for The WIN!

Raley, Watts & O’Neill
and The Selective Group Foundation
Provide Matching Grants
In Support of Sotterley Plantation

Raley, Watts & O’Neill Insurance and The Selective Group Foundation, the foundation of Selective Group, Inc., has joined forces to support the positive efforts of Historic Sotterley, Inc. through a $1,000.00 grant. The grant represents a $500.00 donation from Raley, Watts & O’Neill matched by a $500.00 grant from The Selective Group Foundation.

Rick Tepel, CEO of Raley, Watts & O’Neill said, “Sotterley is such an important and beautiful historical landmark and also provides so many educational resources - there is truly nothing else like it in Southern Maryland.” Mr. Tepel is a valued supporter and Board of Trustees member of Historic Sotterley, Inc.

“The Matching Grant program allows us to partner with our agents to support the needs of the communities in which we serve and operate,” said Tony Albanese, Senior Vice President, Bond and Agency Development.

“During these tenuous economic times, businesses are creatively finding ways to support Sotterley Plantation, and matching grants allow donated funds to be multiplied,” stated Nancy Easterling, Executive Director of Sotterley Plantation. “This generous grant will be applied toward the Riverside WineFest at Sotterley 2010, our well-established event now in its 10th year, with all proceeds directly supporting Sotterley’s significant educational programs. Our most sincere thanks to Raley, Watts & O’Neill and The Selective Group Foundation for being part of our continuing history.”
