Rockwell Financial Solutions is gearing up for its highly anticipated annual philanthropic initiative, the “1% Event,” scheduled for September 8th, 2024. This event, aimed at bringing hope and positive change to at-risk youth in the community, addresses challenges in academics, fatherless households, and poverty.

With a commitment that goes beyond mere lip service, Rockwell Financial Solutions, in collaboration with generous sponsors, is covering the majority of the event’s costs. The 1% Event is set to host 150 attendees, with a significant 80% being at-risk youth, showcasing the company’s dedication to reinvesting in the local community.

Owner Kyle Gardner, known for his forward-thinking approach, emphasizes the event’s mission, stating, “The objective is to change lives. We aim to reach those in need the most, which is why at-risk youth are granted complimentary access to this transformative experience.”

To fortify the event’s financial foundation, Rockwell is making 10-20% of the tickets available for purchase, allowing those with the means to contribute financially and “pay it forward.” The proceeds from ticket sales will be reinvested into the event, ensuring its sustainability and amplifying its impact in the years to come.

What sets the 1% Event apart is its innovative “interview style” format. Departing from conventional conferences, the event features real business owners sharing their experiences and insights in a conversational manner. Gardner criticizes traditional conferences, stating, “Most conferences hire professional speakers to hype everyone up. But what have they actually built? Our speakers are real business owners who have faced challenges, stumbled, and built something tangible.”

This unique interview format provides an authentic and relatable platform for the speakers. Gardner emphasizes, “Our speakers don’t do this professionally; they may stutter or lose their train of thought. The interview style alleviates the pressure, making it like having a normal conversation. They don’t need to memorize a 30+ minute speech.”

The 1% Event is intentionally curated to be a dynamic and entertaining experience, departing from the typical ambiance of traditional conferences. Attendees can expect an electrifying atmosphere with vibrant music, sparklers, smoke cannons, and an overall vivacious ambiance. Gardner explains, “We want this event to be an experience, not just another conference. We don’t want people looking at their watches constantly; we want them engaged, entertained, and inspired. It’s about making a real impact and creating lasting memories.”

The 1% Event stands as a testament to Rockwell Financial Solutions’ unwavering commitment to community engagement and empowerment. By specifically targeting at-risk youth and providing them with access to invaluable insights from real business owners, Rockwell transcends the conventional role of event hosting, becoming a catalyst for positive change in the lives of those who need it the most. This event exemplifies Rockwell Financial Solutions as a driving force for change, instilling hope and empowerment within the Springfield community.

As the countdown to the 1% Event begins, anticipation builds in Springfield, with the community eagerly awaiting the transformative experience promised by Rockwell Financial Solutions. The event not only symbolizes a commitment to philanthropy but also serves as a shining example of how businesses can play a pivotal role in creating a lasting impact on the communities they serve. With its unique format, engaging atmosphere, and focus on at-risk youth, the 1% Event is poised to leave an indelible mark on Springfield, illuminating a path toward positive change and empowerment.
