NearingtheFinishLine!
On September 30th, 2017, the team at HighPoint Advisors, LLC supported the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The Walk started at the SRC Arena, and wound around the entirety of the OCC campus. It felt great to come together as a team and enjoy the fresh fall air while supporting such a worthy cause. Some of our significant others even joined in! Overall, the Alzheimer's Association was able to raise over $206,000, which will go towards supporting those with the disease, as well as researching new treatments and an eventual cure. This was our first year participating in the walk. We look forward to making this a yearly event for our team!

The Good Life: College Savings Tips

The latest issue of Central New York Magazine: The Good Life features college savings tips from AJ, our Managing Director. It is a bimonthly magazine celebrating people and places in Central New York. It focuses on a broad range of topics that range from politics to philanthropy and from food to fashion. “For most parents, how you’re going to pay for your child’s college education is a common concern. New York State’s new tuition-free degree program, the Excelsior Scholarship, is an exciting option to offset some of the expenses of college. But it won’t cover everything.” AJ suggested five things to consider when putting together a college savings plan, including a NYS 529 plan and starting early. “Kids usually go to college at age 17 or 18, so starting early can provide a lot of time to compound earnings/interest on investments.” For the full article, pick up a copy at Wegmans or Barnes & Noble, or, stop by our office to take a look in our reception area. ...

Chiefs Night 2017

The HighPoint Team
Chiefs Logo
On Thursday, June 29th, the HighPoint Advisors, LLC team hosted a night out at the ballpark. We rented the Hank Sauer room at NBT Bank Stadium and cheered on the Syracuse Chiefs as they took on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees). It also happened to be Country Night at the ballpark, so the stands were full of festive cowboy hats and boots. Despite a stormy weather report, the skies remained clear. The Chiefs hit two home runs, but the RailRiders still managed to pull off a win. Thank you to our sponsors James Doyle of Natixis and Bryan Eckelman of American Beacon for helping to make this wonderful night possible. A very special thank you to the clients who joined us - we hope they had as much fun as we did! ...

Enjoying the Festivities
The 5th annual Cinco De Mayo Shred Event hosted by us at HighPoint Advisors, LLC was a fun night for all! It was so great to see so many of our friends and clients come out and enjoy some great local food and dispose of their documents in an environmentally friendly and secure way. The weather was on our side and the rain held off until everyone was able to shred their documents. This year, we shredded over 1,200 gallons of our clients’ documents, making this our largest shred event so far! We had a 4 ton shred truck brought by Shred Solvers, and food catered by Olé Olé. Thank you to Greg Pierce from JANUS Capital for sponsoring the event, and to our friend and partner, Steve Petricolla from Eaton Vance, for providing a very informative update on the global markets. We look forward to seeing you at this event next year!

On April 21st, the HighPoint Advisors, LLC team took a day off to help clean up our community as part of Earth Day 2017. This year we chose a stretch of road in Minoa, NY to clean up. The weather wasn’t the best, but we still did our part to help clean up mother earth. A special thanks to OCRRA for taking care of the garbage that we took off the road. After our cleanup was complete, we grabbed a few slices of pizza at Trappers II (also in Minoa). It was great to get out of the office and help the community....

Syracuse Heart Walk 2017

HighPoint Advisors team
American Heart Association
On April 1st, 2017, the team at HighPoint Advisors, LLC once again supported the Syracuse Heart Walk. The Walk took place at the SRC Arena again, and the rain held off so that the walkers were able to stay mostly dry. During our fundraising period the team raised over $2500 for the American Heart Association. That puts our team in the top 13% of all participating teams! As of the date of the walk the total amount raised by all teams was roughly $550,000 – and fundraising is still open until 4/30/17. We would like to thank our clients, friends, corporate partners, and our team in their effort toward reaching this large fundraising amount. Also, our own Patrick Newton and his parents (Dean & Rita Newton) are volunteers each year working in the food area of the festivities.

A Donation of the Rescue Mission

Rescue Mission
As a part of our 5th Anniversary celebration on October 27th we did a 50/50 raffle that benefited two local charities that our team cares about and supports. One of the two organizations was the Rescue Mission, which is located here in Syracuse, NY. At the Rescue Mission they believe a hot meal or a warm bed can be the first step to life change. Our own Terri is a huge supporter of this generous company, and volunteers frequently in her free time. We presented management with a check for the proceeds of the raffle and thanked them again for all that they do for our community. If you don’t know about this wonderful organization, please check out their website at http://rescuemissionalliance.org/syracuse-about/
