Heart Walk 2018
On April 21st, 2018, the team at HighPoint Advisors, LLC once again supported the Syracuse Heart Walk. The Walk took place at the SRC Arena, and on the most beautiful morning that Syracuse has seen in weeks. During our fundraising period the team raised over $2,100 for the American Heart Association. That puts our team in the top 15% of all participating teams! As of the date of the walk the total amount raised by all teams was roughly $548,000 – and fundraising is still open for another couple weeks. We would like to thank our clients, friends, families, corporate partners, and our team in their effort toward reaching this fundraising amount. We look forward to participating in this event again next year! ...
Believe In Syracuse Birthday Bash
On January 26th, 2018, the team at HighPoint Advisors, LLC joined Believe in Syracuse for their annual Birthday Bash. It's the fifth year that Believe in Syracuse has thrown the event, and the first in which HighPoint has participated. We had a great time mingling with people - over 1,200 visitors and 80 vendors attended the event! We were lucky enough for our booth to be located right next to Creole Soul. Darren, the chef and owner, supplied us with a steady stream of delectable samples all evening. If you've yet to try his food, we highly recommend it! Overall, it was wonderful to spend the evening celebrating all that Syracuse has to offer against the enchanting backdrop of the Landmark Theater. We hope to return in the future! ...
Buy Local Bash 2017
For the 5th year in a row, HighPoint Advisors, LLC was one of the main sponsors of the Syracuse First Buy Local Bash. This great yearly event showcases some of the amazing businesses we are so lucky to have here in Syracuse. Held on Monday, November 20th, 2017, this year's Bash brought together many of our area’s best food, beverage, retail, and service businesses all under one roof. Each year this event grows and it’s great to see both familiar and new faces and businesses. Collectively this is one of HighPoint Advisors, LLC’s favorite events to participate in! We had a blast connecting with other local business owners and trying samples from restaurants like Original Grain and Dinosaur Barbecue. If you've never attended the Buy Local Bash, we highly recommend it for next year. Either way, remember to shop small this holiday season and support local business!

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. ...
