San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Blue Thong Society Members and their families now receive a discount on two important benefits through Mutual of Omaha’s Long Term Care (LTC) and Critical Illness Programs. Critical Illness is a new and upcoming benefit and BTS members and their families are offered coverage at a discount. The LTC covers 24-hour care for anyone who needs help with at least 2 of the 6 Daily Activities (*see below for details).
“This benefit will bring more help and support to our members,” says Mary Jo Wallo, BTS Founder. “We continue to seek out benefits for our members because they work so hard for our organization and for our GoodWorks™ Program”. Ms Wallo continues, “Our members do so much for others and we are proud to be able to help them and their families with this new benefit.”
BTS Chapters all across the nation support local community projects and charities as part of their national GoodWorks™ Program. BTS Chapters have earned numerous awards over the past 6 years including recent awards bestowed upon the Buffalo, NY Blue Flames Chapter. This chapter was recognized in May 2012 with a Public Relations Award for Outstanding Assistance and Commitment for their charity, “Compassion in Action,” an organization providing assistance to the ill or injured. This chapter was also acknowledged for their charitable efforts by New York State Senator George D. Maziarz and The New York State Assembly with a Certificate of Merit.
The Blue Thong Society also holds regional and local chapter events several times each year. A very special event, “Under the Blue Tent,” held on May 19th attracted women from all over New York City. The highly successful event included presentations from noted speakers and authors such as Barbara Grufferman, author and contributor to the Huffington Post and Dr. Suzanne B. Phillips, Psy.D., ABPP, Psychologist, Psychoanalyst & author ”. A celebration event will be held in San Diego, CA on June 30th to mark the BTS 6 year anniversary. “BTS events are always open to the public”, says Mary Jo Wallo. “This celebration event takes us back to where it all began 6 years ago in San Diego at the San Diego Marriot, the site of our very first BTS event.”
