CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Chicago Lighthouse announces that David Huber CFP®, CEO of Huber Financial Advisors, LLC, an independent wealth management firm, will serve as the Presenting Sponsor for Lighthouses on The Mag Mile, a citywide public art initiative celebrating access and inclusion this summer.
Highlighting this very special event, which takes place June 19 through August 11, will be more than 50 six-foot-tall lighthouse sculptures, which will be installed for public display along Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue, renowned around the world as The Magnificent Mile. The lighthouses will be created by national and local Chicago artists, many with disabilities.
“We’re thrilled that David and his firm will help lead the way for access and inclusion by serving as the presenting sponsor of this game-changing effort, which celebrates the accomplishments of the disabled community,” said Dr. Janet Szlyk, President and CEO of The Lighthouse, who developed the concept and is spearheading the project.
Noting that 2018 represents several personal milestones, including his 10-year anniversary of working with The Chicago Lighthouse Board of Directors and Huber Financial’s 30-year anniversary, Mr. Huber said: “Partnering with The Lighthouse to give voice to what’s possible for people living with disabilities is a great way to celebrate this banner year!”
Jeff Hanson of Kansas City, an award-winning and visually-impaired artist, is painting the Huber Financial Advisors lighthouse, which will be displayed in the Wrigley Building Plaza during the event. His paintings hang in the homes of art collectors across the globe, including Sir Elton John, Warren Buffett and many others who are touched by his generous soul and unique style.
Joining forces with The Lighthouse and Huber Financial Advisors in this celebration are The Magnificent Mile® Association, the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities and Project Onward.
