TOPEKA, Kan., March 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In keeping with its commitment to the community, Advisors Excel and its affiliated financial professionals recently raised $471,000 for Habitat for Humanity during a fundraising event.

It's the hub where dreams are born and nurtured," said Advisors Excel Co-Founder Cody Foster. "It is our hope that by assisting families and individuals with homes through Habitat for Humanity, we are helping give a brighter future," Foster said.
