RT Specialty Los Angeles “Adopts A Wish” from Make-A-Wish Foundation Greater LA Chapter
June 28, 2023 | CHICAGO, IL – RT Specialty, the wholesale distribution specialty of Ryan Specialty (NYSE: RYAN), a leading international specialty insurance firm, “Adopted A Wish” this month in conjunction with the Make-A-Wish foundation’s Los Angeles chapter.
Led by the efforts of Viviane Woodcock, President, RT Workers’ Compensation, RT Specialty employees held a heartwarming event at RT Specialty’s downtown Los Angeles office to reveal to wish kid Lylah that she would finally have her wish granted after having to delay it due to the pandemic. Lylah’s mother, stepfather and brother were all there to join in the celebration.
RT Specialty raised the funds via charitable donations to send Lylah, a 12-year-old girl, currently in remission from leukemia, along with her parents and 5-year-old brother, on an all-inclusive Hawaiian vacation, intended to bring joy and uplift the entire family’s spirits from the stress over many years of Lylah battling this challenging illness. The successful event filled the hearts and brought smiles to everyone involved.
