Strategic Wealth Partners (SWP) Hosts Women’s Luncheon and Collection Drive for Deployed Troops

DEERFIELD, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–More than 50 women gathered in a strong show of support for deployed troops at the Strategic Wealth Partners (SWP) SWP Women, Wealth & Wisdom Luncheon at Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park.

With the holidays approaching, guests were asked to bring leftover Halloween candy and wish list items to donate to our deployed troops through the non-profit organization, Operation Gratitude. Their generous donations amounted to 44 pounds of candy and many other requested items, including dental supplies, hygiene products, stationary, winter hats, gloves and more. The women also had an opportunity to write personalized letters of gratitude to the troops.

In addition to a focus on troops, the luncheon featured health and wellness speaker and “Oh Lardy” Real Food blogger Tamara Mannelly.

“Our inspiration for this event is to help all of us continue to grow, explore and find purpose in everything we do,” said Ashley Bebeau, CFP®, Senior Financial Planner at SWP. “We understand you are busy, probably taking care of people you love. We want to make sure you are taking care of yourself as well.”

Another objective for the event was to build deeper relationships between clients and the ten women employed by the firm.

“Our vision is to build a sustainable firm that will be here to serve the many future generations of clients’ families,” said Moira Fahey-Ullrich, Principal & Chief Solutions Officer of SWP.

Still, there is no shortage of “experts” – supported by research, sophisticated models, and persuasive reasoning – that routinely broadcast what’s in store for the next twelve months. The harsh reality: it’s fool’s gold – entertaining but rarely actionable.
