The hype of overnight success in sports, music and acting can lead us to believe that our day to day discipline and the mentors in our own communities don’t have value, when these are THE MOST important resources we have.

Boulder, Denver, and DC based financial planning practice, The Millstone Evans Group of Raymond James & Associates, announces a new sponsorship for Funding the Future to promote financial literacy for students in Colorado.

Sacha Millstone, Senior VP of Investment at The Millstone Evans Group, has agreed to sponsor all 5 upcoming shows in Colorado this fall. GOODING will travel to local schools in the Denver and Boulder area putting on assemblies Oct 21-24.

Using the power of a live rock performance and their own personal story, GOODING inspires young people with lessons of finance and discipline to help them see their own dreams as possibilities. Through concert, multimedia presentation and talkback, they discuss predatory lending, the danger of credit card debt, saving early and looking to community leaders for support and mentorship, while exposing the myth of overnight success.

“The hype of overnight success in sports, music and acting can lead us to believe that our day to day discipline and the mentors in our own communities don’t have value, when these are THE MOST important resources we have.” - Gooding, band front-man and band namesake.

The band experienced their own financial struggles early on in their career. After overcoming these obstacles, they decided to share the message of their lessons learned. Over the years they have become small business owners and have worked with Grammy award winner Quincy Jones’ Operation Hope. The touring band has a strong following, have singles on the record charts, and their original music can be heard in movies, TV shows and commercials.
