Dedicated trustee to receive Help & Hope award

Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Hartford is pleased to announce that Bill Husic is the 2023 recipient of its Help & Hope Award, which recognizes an individual or organization for their inspiring dedication and service to the Catholic Charities mission and community.

Bill will receive the award Friday, Nov. 17, at the Help & Hope breakfast, the signature fundraising event of the year for Catholic Charities, a nonprofit that provides a wide variety of supports for people of any background throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford. This year’s fundraiser is at the Hartford Golf Club in West Hartford, with UConn men’s basketball Coach Dan Hurley as the guest speaker. WTNH news anchor Dennis House will be the emcee.

Husic has worked in the insurance industry since 1981 and since 2002 has been President (Hartford Office), Senior Benefits Consultant & Group Health Actuary for Lockton Companies. He is a proud graduate of Notre Dame University, which he continues to support today.
