Tis’ the season to give and CPS Investment Advisors hopes this donation will help create a special memory for local veterans. Principals and employees raised money for the “Flight to Honor” program. It helps transport military veterans to Washington so they can see the memorials of the wars they fought in. CPS employees are able to wear jeans on Friday if they donate toward a special cause. Flight to Honor was one of the organization’s employees voted to help in 2017. The firm’s partners also matched the donation. Retired Air Force Colonel, Gary Clark, is in charge of the local program and was thrilled to receive this donation to help more veterans experience a memorable journey. CPS Investment Advisors salutes all of our nation’s veterans and active military personnel.
