April 24, 2023

Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance have awarded Lallis & Higgins Insurance a 2023 Make More Happen Award for its volunteerism with Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) New England, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting research to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. The award includes an initial donation of $5,000 for LLS New England, which can be doubled to $10,000 just by having community supporters vote online.

Starting Saturday, April 1, the Lallis & Higgins Insurance and LLS New England Agent Giving story will be highlighted on the official Make More Happen microsite at https://www.agentgiving.com/lallis-higgins-insurance/ where supporters can vote to help the team reach their donation goal. If the featured story receives a mix of at least 500 votes and comments, the $5,000 donation will be raised to $10,000. All donation proceeds will be used for monthly stipends to community members battling cancer, counseling for those navigating their cancer journey and grants to scientists to further promising blood cancer research.

“Helping to make our community a better place has always been important to our team, and LLS New England has given us a way to make a real difference,” said Anthony Lallis, Lallis & Higgins Insurance Co-Founder. “We are grateful to Liberty Mutual and Safeco for providing much-needed funds to continue their impactful work and thrilled at the opportunity to double the donation just by calling on the community to show their support.”

A survivor of childhood leukemia, Lallis has seen firsthand the toll cancer takes on a family which is what inspired him to support this worthy organization who once supported his diagnosis. A past LLS New England board member, Lallis and his agency team help raise funds for the organization’s campaigns and events where all proceeds go to cancer research and impacted families. In 2017, Lallis was awarded ‘The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year’ (now Visionaries of the Year) for his dedication and for raising over $55,000 throughout the campaign. In 2021, Lallis competed in a Haymakers for Hope charity boxing event where he trained for 12 weeks and raised over $16,000 to support cancer research.

Lallis & Higgins Insurance is a shining example of our independent agents’ endless dedication to their nonprofit partners through their volunteering, fundraising and overall awareness efforts,” said Erik Hutchinson, Safeco Insurance Northeast Senior Region Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen Awards allow our agents to spread the word about their good deeds and we hope it inspires other in Massachusetts to get involved.”

Throughout 2023, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select up to 37 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $370,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application and photos demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit.
