Since it’s inception, Play for FA has have raised over $1,500,000 to combat this dreadful disease.
Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Miller Financial Services sponsored the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ Fine Arts & Flowers exhibition. This four-day exhibition presented in November, displayed 75 floral interpretations of artworks in VMFA’s permanent collection created by Virginia’s premiere floral designers.
VMFA is a state-supported, privately endowed educational institution created for the benefit of the citizens of Virginia. The museum’s longstanding mission is to enrich the lives of all Virginians through the arts.
In addition, Miller Financial Services sponsored ARTrageous. This September event was the VMFA’s signature biennial party celebrating the cultural vibrancy that the museum brings to the Commonwealth.
Miller Financial Services continues to support and stay involved with the VMFA.
Annual Tree Planting
Jeff and the team have an annual tradition of planting dogwood trees in memory of loved ones. Shortly after Jeff’s dad died, a good friend delivered a tree to be planted in his dad’s memory. It was a beautiful flowering white dogwood tree planted in the front yard next to the driveway. Every day, as Jeff left in the morning and returned in the evening, he was able to look at that tree and think of his dad. Different thoughts ran through his mind on different days, but all of them were happy and all brought a smile to his face. Because of that we pass this tradition on to our clients.
