SLAYTON - Investors Choice recently presented $20,000 in donations at the “20 for Twenty” milestone event.
“At first we had planned a client appreciation dinner and event to mark our 20th year in business,” Chief Financial Officer Carla Goedtke explained. “As the budget grew to well over $10,000, Jim (Goedtke) made the decision that rather than spending funds and resources on a catered event, speakers and entertainment - that although it may be enjoyable - it may not be remembered a month later.”
By distributing the funds to worthy area organizations, the Goedtkes felt that there would be a significant impact to many individuals benefiting from multiple organizations. Donations were made to 10 area fire departments and several non-profits, including Slayton Kiwanis for Children’s Miracle Network and Prairie Home Hospice. Grant requests totaling $10,250 were also made to 11 area school districts that submitted proposals for fund use.
Investors Choice Financial Services Inc. was co-founded by Jim and Carla Goedtke in 1995. It was founded to provide individuals and organizations personal financial guidance suited specifically to their needs. Its goal is to provide excellent advice and service as individuals plan for their financial futures.
