R. Wells Hughes, Arlington Financial Advisors’ Founding Partner, Joins Dream Foundation’s Board of Directors
Santa Barbara, Calif. –– R. Wells Hughes, Arlington Financial Advisors’ founding partner, will join the National Board of Directors for Dream Foundation, the only national dream-granting organization for terminally-ill adults and their families. As a member of the Board, Hughes will serve as treasurer. He will also serve on the organization’s finance committee.
“Wells and his family have been supporting end-of-life Dreams across the nation and taken part in local programs for more than ten years,” says Dream Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer Kisa Heyer. “We are pleased to welcome him to the organization in an official capacity and are incredibly fortunate to collaborate with someone so dedicated to the work we do and those we serve.”
“I decided to become a part of Dream Foundation years ago because their mission is so pure – helping families during one of their most emotionally and financially challenging times any of us go through in life,” says Hughes. “I have joined in on delivering a few Dreams and it was extremely gratifying to see how our help is received by our Dream recipients and their families and what it means to them. I have also become deeply committed to the Flower Empower program, and have helped make bouquets of flowers and delivered them to people who are in need of cheer in our community. I have included my daughter in these events as well to teach her about giving back to others. I love Dream Foundation’s mission!”
Hughes has been helping professionals and families reach their financial goals since 1987 but established Arlington Financials Advisors nearly 10 years ago in Santa Barbara, Calif. Incredibly active in the community, Hughes is the founding board president and now serves as an emeritus board member of the Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation from whom he received the 2015 Humanitarian Award. His support also extends to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. He originally became involved with the organization as a “Big Brother” in 1999. 21 years later, the bond between the brothers is as strong as ever.
