Stifel 200Stifel is pleased to announce that Phil Cohl and Tawnee Hosick, financial advisors in the firm’s San Luis Obispo office, have sponsored a major restoration and deep cleansing of the sidewalk in local landmark Bubble Gum Alley.  The work was recently performed by a company hired by the city of San Luis Obispo.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide the most thorough cleaning Bubble Gum Alley has received in over 40 years,” said Phil.  “We love the downtown area and are committed to enhancing it for our community and visitors in any way we can.”

Phil and Tawnee decided to sponsor this significant project, which took months to complete, when they learned of many downtown business owners’ desire for enhanced upkeep of the tourist attraction.  Bubble Gum Alley, which in 2013 was a finalist in travel web site Virtual Tourist’s unofficial “8th Wonder of the World” competition, draws thousands of visitors per year and displays 1.7 million pieces of gum – and counting!

Stifel’s San Luis Obispo office is located at 999 Monterey Street and can be reached by calling (805) 783-2921 or toll-free at (877) 816-1231.
