TORONTO, Oct. 29 /CNW/ - More than 250 of Canada's top hedge fund
industry professionals will be gathering once again in support of Hedge Funds
Care Canada, the only philanthropy exclusively dedicated to the treatment and
prevention of child abuse.
Bay Street, Bloor Street and visiting Wall Street and Golden Mile hedge
fund high-rollers will be partaking in a gourmet-gala evening of top-tier
foods prepared by the award-winning chefs of the Toronto International Film
Festival fave Sutton Place on Thursday November 8, 2007.
Guests will be invited to cash in on Hedge Funds Care Canada's
third-annual "Diamond Rush" event, where a genuine one-carat custom-designed
diamond pendant by jewelers P&H Design worth more than $7,000 will be hidden
among some 65 cubic zirconium pendants, with one lucky guest wearing home the
real McCoy for a song. A weekend getaway for two, courtesy of Porter Airlines
and W Hotels, one-of-a-kind artwork donated by Toronto artist Ania Machudera
and Toronto-based gallery Art Interiors, exclusive wines and other high-end
items will also be up for silent auction.
Adding to the elegance of the evening are the gracious and generous
efforts of our local and international sponsors, which include: Advent
Software, AIMA Canada, Calyon Financial, CMC Markets, Citco, Credit Suisse,
Deloitte & Touche, Ernst & Young, Fulcrum Fund Administration, Hillsdale
Investment Management, Morgan Stanley Fund Services, PerTrac Financial
Solutions, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Rosseau Asset Management, Scotia Capital
Markets, Sprott Asset Management and TD Securities.
Funds raised go in support of Hedge Funds Care Canada, which was
established in 2004 as a way for the Canadian hedge fund community to give
back to organizations that provide prevention services to children and
families who are at risk for abuse and/or neglect, and treatment to children
who have been victims of abuse.
Hedge Funds Care Canada is part of a larger alliance of hedge fund
industry professionals that comprise New York-based Hedge Funds Care, which
was established in 1998 by Rob Davis, a dedicated hedge fund professional
interested in giving back to protect children from abuse and neglect.
The group, which includes prime brokers, attorneys, accountants,
information providers, investors and managers, has raised more than $25
million through annual benefits in Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Chicago,
Atlanta, Boston, Denver, London and the Cayman Islands, which has been
distributed to local, community-based nonprofits focused on providing
treatment and support to families in crisis, children who have been abused
and/or are in foster care.
Hedge Funds Care is proud to be the only business group solely devoted to
combating child abuse, and in eight years has made a powerful contribution to
saving children. Because of the shame associated with child abuse, it remains
a dramatically under-resourced and rarely discussed problem.
