Symmetry Financial Group Sponsors Elizabeth Smart Event
Symmetry Financial Group is honored to sponsor Where There’s Hope, There’s Healing, an Our VOICE event featuring Elizabeth Smart in Asheville on March 8 th .

Symmetry Financial Group chose to work with Our VOICE because of their steadfast dedication to supporting victims of sexual violence in the local community.

As such, we’re proud of our community partners that continually drive change through advocacy and support,” said Whit Zeh, Director of Community Relations at Symmetry Financial Group. “Together, we hope to be able to bring to light these significant community issues that will often go undiscussed. We cannot think of a better way to accomplish this than helping Our VOICE bring to our community one of the most well-known advocates against sexual violence, Elizabeth Smart.”
