Leaders of Canada’s alternative investment industry and broader financial community will be gathering on 17 November for the 13th annual HFC Canada Benefit – a fundraising evening organised by Hedge Funds Care Canada/Help for Children.
Canada’s top financial organisations will be represented at the gala, which is being held at The Storys Building, 11 Duncan Street, Toronto.
Proceeds raised from the gala will go to support local and national charities that support the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
To date, Hedge Funds Care Canada has raised more than USD2.5 million and has made grants in support of 53 organisations that are committed to the protection and healing of children.
“Once again we are overwhelmed with the generous support of Canada’s financial services community, which has fuelled the growth of this important initiative,” says Hedge Funds Care Canada-Help for Children president and director Corey Goldman (pictured). “That child abuse and neglect exists is an unfortunate reality. That Canada’s financial services community, the alternatives industry in particular, supports its prevention and treatment, is a testament to the importance of this cause.”
Kimberly Yeung, of Kensington Capital Partners, who along with Laura Reid of KPMG is serving as co-chair of this year’s event, says: “The Canadian hedge fund and broader investment management industry’s response to the Gala and the cause it supports has once again been fantastic.
“Our efforts would not be possible without the incredible support and generosity of our sponsors, including lead sponsor Sprott Asset Management as well as Arrow Capital Management, CIBC, Citco Canada, Picton Mahoney Asset Management, Polar Securities, Scotia Capital, TD Securities, and many others.”
