Timothy Rice, Advisor at Lakeside Wealth Management in Chesterton, IN has been announced as one of three national finalists for the Community Service Award as part of the twelfth annual Invest in Others Awards.

If Rice wins his category, the donation will increase to $25,000.
The Invest in Others Awards program recognizes the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world. Advisors are nominated by their peers for actively giving back to non-profits to improve their communities and make a difference in the lives of others. There are five award categories for advisors and two for financial services companies.
Invest in Others received hundreds of nominations this year. Individual finalists were selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a non-profit and the community it serves.
Over the past eleven years, Tim Rice has worked closely with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Northwest Indiana, providing crucial leadership through capital campaigns and a merger. Tim has served in every possible position during his tenure with the organization and currently serves as the Treasurer on the Executive Committee. Under his leadership as the Capital Campaign Co-Chair with his wife Shelly, $4 million dollars were raised to renovate and expand the Duneland Club. This new facility opened in April 2017 and since then, average daily attendance at the Club has grown by 110%!
After wrapping up a successful capital campaign, Tim went on to oversee due diligence in evaluating a merger between the Boys and Girls Clubs of Porter County with another B&GC organization. The new entity serves more than 2,300 youth per day at 10 facilities and 11 before and after school sites. These achievements have garnered national awards and attention, placing B&GC of Northwest Indiana as one of the top 2% of clubs nationally. Tim values the positive role the club has for youth in his hometown and is proud of the fact that his daughter is a member who attends programming several days a week.
Awards will be presented at the twelfth annual Invest in Others Awards Gala, a premier event attended by nearly 800 financial advisors and financial services executives, on September 27, 2018 in Boston, MA.
