“My wife, Debbie, and I purchased a house in Buffalo three years ago, and we wanted to do something to help the local community,” said Wolf Wealth Advisors founder Brian Wolf.

Wolf has been providing insurance, tax, and financial planning services in the Twin Cities for almost three decades. Recently, he also opened an office in Buffalo.

When Wolf heard about the Buffalo Hospital Foundation’s work, he knew it was an organization he’d be proud to support.

“I was impressed with what they do,” he said.

Buffalo Hospital Foundation Director Karla Heeter said a few past projects have included a birth center, a spiritual center, and a cancer institute.

“The wellness center will help people on their journey to health, whether it’s through massage, acupuncture, or healthy cooking classes,” Heeter said. “Buffalo Hospital will always be here to care for those who are sick, but we also want to focus on keeping people well.”

The term “wellness” extends to many facets of life, according to Heeter.

“Our partnership with Wolf Wealth Advisors is unique, because financial wellness is important, too,” she explained. “Finances can be stressful, and stress is a big issue in our health; financial stability can contribute to overall wellness.”

Wolf Wealth Advisors’ recent charity event also provided opportunities for wellness. The event included a visit from professional golfer John Harris, a putting contest, 18-hole shotgun start, lasagna/salad dinner, and a live auction.

“It was a classy event, and the amount of money raised far exceeded our expectations,” Heeter said.
