West Bend Mutual Insurance recently announced that it gave its Spirit of the Silver Lining Award to Dan Riley, Executive Vice President at Minnesota Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers Association (MIIAB) in Maple Grove. The award honors West Bend agents and the nonprofit organizations they support for their dedication to delivering a silver lining to those in need.

Riley was presented the Spirit of the Silver Lining Award for his work with Make-A-Wish Minnesota. Additionally, West Bend donated a $10,000 grant to the organization.
