Help for Children Canada to hold annual benefit on Toronto Stock Exchange trading floor

Related Topics

On Thursday 20 September, leaders of Canada’s financial services community and friends will gather on the trading floor of the historic Toronto Stock Exchange for the 15th Annual ‘Open Your Hearts to the Children’ Benefit, a fundraising evening in support of Help for Children/Hedge Funds Care (HFC) Canada.

All proceeds will go towards supporting local and national charities that are dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse. Through the charitable goodwill of local industry professionals, HFC Canada was founded in 2003 as an affiliate of Help For Children, a global non-profit based in New York City whose mission is to prevent and treat child abuse in 13 cities in seven countries around the world.
“We are grateful for the generous support of the financial services community, particularly Canada’s hedge fund industry, which has been a champion of this impactful initiative from the very beginning,” says HFC Canada President and Director and Goldman Communications CEO Corey Goldman. “As we mark our 15th year in Canada, we are pleased with what we have accomplished, but also cognisant of the work ahead that still needs to be completed to continue to combat and treat child abuse and neglect.”
To date, HFC Canada has distributed nearly CAD1.7 million in 57 grants, helping to make a local impact on thousands of lives each year. Through successful fundraising events and other initiatives, HFC Canada has taken a leadership role in reducing trauma, building individual strengths, decreasing risk and strengthening families in the Toronto and surrounding areas.
“Funding for these grants is a direct result of the support received from Canada’s financial services and alternative investment community,” says event Co-Chairs Rees Barnett of Pietas Capital and Rob Duncan of NewGen Capital. “Much of what has been accomplished would not be possible without the support of our national and global sponsors, including Citco Canada, Arrow Capital, Polar Securities, EY, TD Securities and many others.”
