Renowned Coach Lou Holtz to Speak at June 29 Retirement Expo to Benefit DuPage Foundation

DOWNERS GROVE, IL—Legendary football coach Lou Holtz will headline an all-star lineup of the nation’s top financial advisors during the DuPage County 2017 Retirement Expo on Thursday, June 29, 2017, at the College of DuPage’s McAninch Arts Center in Glen Ellyn. The event is sponsored by Brookstone Capital Management, Perkins & Zayed, and Prizm Financial Advisors, and all proceeds from the event will benefit the DuPage Foundation.

“In addition to raising funds for the DuPage Foundation, this event will provide an outstanding educational platform for all who are interested in learning more about effective asset management, estate and retirement planning strategies,” said Mark D. Perkins, a principal attorney at Perkins & Zayed. “You will be inspired from start to finish.”

Perkins said the program’s financial experts will have meaningful insights for everyone—regardless of their level of interest and experience. “These men have helped thousands of individuals develop their future incomes and focus their planning,” he said.

Holtz, a former coach at the University of Notre Dame, will be joined by a uniquely qualified group of financial experts headed by Dean Zayed, CEO at Brookstone Capital Management.

“Coach Holtz has established himself as one of the most successful college football coaches of all time,” said Andrew Anderson, an associate advisor at Prizm Financial Advisors. Holtz has served as a college football studio analyst on ESPN from 2004-2015. He appeared on ESPNEWS, ESPN College GameDay programs, SportsCenter and as an on-site analyst for college football games.

For many years Holtz has been considered among the greatest speaking legends in America. His talks focus on overcoming seemingly impossible challenges by setting your own goals and working to achieve them. He has built a reputation as a motivator, a demanding disciplinarian and someone who relishes challenges and hard work.

“Coach Holtz will share how to make the proper adjustments for optimal success,” Anderson said. “He will also relate how to see the entire playing field to make successful decisions and how focusing on people drives success.”

“The DuPage Foundation works to help people achieve their charitable goals while supporting a variety of critical not-for-profit agencies and programs throughout DuPage County,” said Dave McGowan, DuPage Foundation president & CEO. “We are honored to be a part of this event and thankful for the chance to encourage charitable giving as an integral part of estate and retirement planning.”
