Hedge Fund Care Award Gala

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is to be Special Guest at the 9th Annual Hedge Funds Care New York Open Your Heart to the Children Benefit. The Hedge Funds Care Award for Caring will also be awarded this year at the gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. The benefit is taking place on February 8th, 2007.

Pelosi, long a champion of children's rights, will be joined by two devoted advocates for the rights of abused, neglected and at-risk children: Michael Vranos, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ellington with assets under management of over $21.7 billion. Mr. Vranos was cited by Global Finance magazine as one of the world's 600 most powerful people in finance, and Shari Shink, Founder and Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Children's Law Center.

The flagship event will be chaired by Mitchell Lieberman of Goldman Sachs and Michael Tannenbaum of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP. The three individuals being honored represent the very ideals Hedge Funds Care was created to serve. Each has displayed a commitment to the rights of children and families through their work in government, philanthropy and children services.
