Newport News | Williamsburg | Virginia Beach, VA, Nov. 15, 2018 -- Lions Bridge Financial Advisors, a financial planning, insurance and investment services company serving all of Coastal Virginia and clients in 25 states, has been awarded a 2018 Community Impact Award by Coastal Virginia Magazine.
The magazine recognized Lions Bridge Financial Advisors for its work supporting the most vulnerable in society and for volunteering in the community. Currently, Jayne Di Vincenzo, president, serves on the boards of The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, the Retirement Board for the City of Newport News, the Investment Committee for the City of Newport News Pension Fund, and the Newport News Education Foundation.
Di Vincenzo and her firm were also recognized for the creation of a college scholarship, the Lion’s Bridge Scholars, designed to reward college- bound students who have overcome hardships to succeed in high school. Educational opportunity is important to Jayne and her team, in addition she has been supporting three girls in Kenya, Africa, who could not have attended middle and high school without financial support. “This May our first Kenya student graduated high school—this is an exciting achievement for her family that we’re thrilled to have been part of.”
Di Vincenzo and her firm, Lions Bridge Financial Advisors, provides financial support for other charities that care for the most vulnerable in society including the Alzheimer’s Association, Compassion International, International Rescue Mission, African Wildlife Foundation, Union Mission and the Peninsula SPCA.
The magazine selected companies and individuals who exhibit “a tangible, measurable effect on their communities based on innovative work programs, volunteer efforts, or creative business models that promote the social health of community.” Di Vincenzo and her team are honored to be among those commended, and hope that more firms recognize the personal satisfaction that comes from leaving an impact by donation of both time and money to better the lives and outcomes for others.
Lions Bridge Financial Advisors has offices in Newport News, Williamsburg and Virginia Beach.
“To our company, community impact means getting involved -- sometimes getting your hands dirty and sometimes writing a check,” Jayne Di Vincenzo said. “Our company culture includes giving back by using our talents and our time. We can – and we should – all work hard to have a positive impact on our community and leave as many lives as we can better.”
