Spring 2010 Giving Network Agency of the Year, Columbus Branch

Agency: Mitchell Insurance Agency, Plain City and Grove City, Ohio
Donation: Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation

Columbus Agent Robb Mitchell was hit hard when his young niece was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs Disease in 2005. Since then, Robb and his agencies in Plain City and Grove City, Ohio, have dedicated countless hours to working with the Cure-Tay Sachs Foundation to raise funds and bring awareness to finding treatment and a cure for the disease. Among other activities, the agency hosts an annual tailgate fundraiser to support the Foundation in finding a cure for the deadly disease.

“Robb Mitchell is tremendously dedicated to our cause and we are much better off because of him,” said Kenneth Bihn, president of the Cure Tay-Sachs Foundation. “We are making real progress towards a cure thanks to the kindness and generosity of people like him.”
