Green of Cetera Advisors and Green Financial Resources has won the Community Service Award from the Invest in Others Charitable Foundation. The 15th Annual Invest in Others Awards were presented this week, and the Community Service Award is designed to recognize an advisor who has made an outstanding impact through leadership contributions to a nonprofit for at least three years.

The Auditory-Verbal Center will receive $50,000 in honor of Roger.
In accepting the award, Green commented, "Thank you to Invest in Others so much for recognizing me for the Community Service Award. This money will radically change lives and teach hearing-impaired children how to speak perfectly clearly and be understood. I also want to thank the amazing director of the Auditory-Verbal Center and all the great therapists who will use the $50,000 and change lives with the ability to communicate more clearly. Thank you so much. I am humbled."
