On Wednesday, October 23rd the Rochester office hosted the annual Market Wrap. With foliage in full bloom and a crisp breeze in the autumn air, nearly 200 clients convened at the Monroe Golf Club for an informative session focused on Cybersecurity. The presentation scoped the significance of the risks of navigating in the digital world, including the costs and time attributable to identity theft. Several specific threats were identified in the form of strategies used by cybercriminals. For each threat, tactics were offered to defend oneself against such pitfalls. Importantly, the safeguards that CAS has in place to protect the business and client information were also discussed.

On a spectacular June evening, Ciccarelli Advisory Services welcomed clients and their families to the Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester. A total of almost 300 guests attended this very special event! Everyone enjoyed a picnic dinner and full access to the zoo – who didn’t love that rhinoceros? The zoo was open to our guests only which let us all have time to greet old friends, meet new friends, and leisurely enjoy a stroll through the park-like setting of the zoo.
Our Rochester office hosted the annual Market Wrap event on Thursday, October 25. Nearly 150 of our clients convened for Ray Ciccarelli’s annual remarks focused on the current state of the market, the economy, employment and happenings around the globe.
There was a chill in the air as clients arrived, as is typical when autumn arrives in Western NY. With the backdrop of the lush green lawns of the Monroe Golf Club and an inviting harvest décor, the clients were welcomed into the ballroom by the warmth of our CAS team!
Following Ray’s remarks and an engaging Q&A session, the clients savored a lavish dessert buffet. Gourmet decorated apples were the favor for the evening. Most importantly, clients left feeling better able to weather the cold and the volatility that lies ahead!
The fifth annual SpelLIFE Women’s Wellness Summit provided more than 300 people in the Southwest Florida community with the knowledge, resources and inspiration needed to pursue a wellness-focused lifestyle.
The summit – presented by A Euphoric Living Foundation, Inc., and èBella magazine – was on Saturday, April 21 at the NCH Telford Center in Naples.
Ciccarelli Advisory Services was a primary sponsor of the 2018 SpelLIFE Women’s Wellness Summit. In addition, 30 local organizations sponsored resource exhibit tables, providing attendees with the opportunity to explore the wellness-focused services that are available in our community.
SpelLIFE 2018 honed in on the relationship between dietary choices and long-term brain health. This message was articulated by keynote speaker Dr. David Perlmutter, a board-certified neurologist and four-time New York Times bestselling author.
Dr. Perlmutter discussed the damaging effect of consuming excessive carbohydrates – especially sugar and grains – on the health of the body and the brain. He emphasized that a low-carb diet is essential to maintaining peak brain function and preventing dementia, in conjunction with regular exercise and consumption of dietary fat.
Dr. Perlmutter also cited other methods for preventing inflammation in the body, such as avoiding artificial sweeteners and supplementing turmeric and probiotics to the diet.
During the breakout sessions at the event, four guest speakers from the Naples community shared their expertise on various topics related to holistic health and wellness:
Chris Edwards, owner of TriCore Wellness;
Dr. Pamela Hughes, owner of Hughes Center for Functional Medicine;
Dr. Caroline Cederquist, founder of Cederquist Medical Wellness Center; and
The Alternative Therapies Panel – Frank Corvino, DeAnna Graziano, Carol McDermott, and Nancy Molidor.
Partial proceeds from the SpelLIFE Women’s Wellness Summit will benefit the Senior Friendship Health Center, a nonprofit organization that offers low- or no-cost medical and dental care to underserved seniors in Collier County.
