Wealth management firm sponsors two holiday season activities in Lawrence, Kansas.

LAWRENCE, Kansas—December 21, 2021—With the ongoing pandemic dampening many people’s spirits, Clayton Wealth Partners decided to do its part to make the holiday season festive. The fee-only wealth management firm is the sponsor for two holiday-themed initiatives in Lawrence:

  • 2021 Harvest Feast Game Gala
  • Lawrence Lights drive-through holiday light tour

“I think we can all use a little levity right now,” said James Walden, CFA, a Partner and Chief Investment Officer at the Registered Investment Advisor in Topeka and Lawrence. “When we heard about these events, we knew we wanted to sponsor them. What better way to promote the holiday cheer but through feasts, games, and Christmas lights?”

The Harvest Feast Game Gala was held on November 19 at Abe & Jake’s Landing. The fundraiser included game show-themed activities, auctions, and a feast by Merchants Pub & Plate.

All proceeds benefited Just Food, the food bank of Douglas County.

The first-ever Lawrence Lights display is a “drive-through holiday wonderland of synchronized lights and lighted displays,” according to the Lawrence Lights website.

It is open nightly from sunset to 9:30 p.m. through December 31 at the Youth Sports Complex. The suggested donation is $20 per car, and reservations and gift certificates can be purchased online. Those who cannot afford to pay can request a scholarship.

Proceeds from the holiday display benefit three organizations:

“The theme for the Lawrence Lights show is ‘making spirits bright,’” Walden said. “We couldn’t be happier to be part of that.”
