The spirit of service was in the air as LPL Financial advisors, employees, sponsors, and community volunteers painted murals to benefit City Year and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston. The event kicked off LPL’s Focus 2015 conference, which thousands of advisors attend every year.

Dozens of attendees spent hours filling in murals and college pennants representing nearby colleges to provide inspiration for children to dream bigger. Academic success is priority outcome area for Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, and because of LPL, each of the 11 Clubs will now have visual reminders on display to stay focused and motivated.

“Thanks to the hard work and the collective efforts of the LPL team, there is no doubt the Clubs will be brighter and more exciting for all Boys & Girls Club participants,” said Lauren Cook, Executive Director, Strategic Partnerships and Initiatives of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.

The LPL Foundation hosted the event and is an enabling partner to organizations that help individuals achieve their aspirations in life. Whether giving young people a strong start or supporting adults who are starting over, the Foundation creates partnerships through volunteer and financial support that enhance access to educational and career resources, fostering economic empowerment for underserved individuals and families in local communities.

Congratulations LPL Financial!
