Canada's Hedge Funds Care Group Raise $150K for Kids

Canada's hedge fund industry gathered in November to raise $150,000 in support of Hedge Funds Care Canada (HFCC), dedicated exclusively to the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.

"The Canadian hedge fund industry is particularly devoted to philanthropic causes, and this cause resonates, even more so in these difficult economic times," said Corey Goldman, President and Director of Hedge Funds Care Canada. "Hard times bring stress, and stress causes pain but there is no reason that any child should be exposed to physical or psychological trauma, maltreatment or neglect."

HFCC is part of a larger alliance of hedge fund industry professionals that comprise New York-based Hedge Funds Care, including prime brokers, attorneys, accountants, information providers, investors and managers. They have raised approximately $31 million through annual benefits in Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Denver, London and the Cayman Islands.
