Hedge Funds Care Canada Gala Raises C$200,000 for Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse

 

Toronto ON November 1, 2013 – Hedge Funds Care Canada is pleased to announce that this year’s "Open Your Hearts to the Children Gala" has raised $200,000 for the prevention and treatment of child abuse. This brings the amount raised to date by the event for this worthwhile cause to more than C$1.1 million.

 

The special fundraising event, held October 23rd in Toronto, was attended by more than 200 Canadian hedge fund industry professionals and their guests. It was the tenth annual such event organized by Hedge Funds Care Canada.

"Hedge Funds Care continues to make strides in raising both money and awareness to this very important cause," said Hedge Funds Care Canada President and Director Corey Goldman. "The dollars raised this year will have a significant impact in continuing to fight the scourge of child abuse in this country."

All of the funds raised through the Hedge Funds Care Gala are distributed through grants to local, community-based organizations devoted to preventing child abuse. This is accomplished through education, prevention, intervention, research, advocacy and training programs.

Event Co-Chairs June-Anne Reid, Claire Van Wyk and Paul Patterson acknowledged the hedge fund community’s "overwhelming response to the gala and the cause it supports." They also expressed gratitude for the generous support of the Committee of Hearts as well as the Gala sponsors including: Sprott Asset Management; Scotia Capital; CIBC World Markets; Citco Fund Services; Polar Securities; Picton Mahoney; First Asset and many others.

Toronto-based investment management firm Arrow Capital Management was awarded this year’s "Award for Caring," a prestigious award granted to firms that demonstrate particularly strong support for the organization and its important cause.
