Hedge Funds Care 5th Annual Gala

Grange St. Paul's Hotel, London

2nd DECEMBER 2010

Hedge Funds Care UK, the alliance of hedge fund industry professionals committed to protecting children from abuse and neglect, held its fifth annual London fundraising gala on 2 December 2010.

More than 400 hedge fund industry professionals gathered at the Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London at the event hosted by the Patron of the charity, Esther Rantzen OBE. Cabaret was provided by Alistair McGowan and the auction, featuring items such a signed Status Quo guitar and a luxury holiday in Barbados, was conducted by Lord Jeffrey Archer.

The event raised £250,000 for charities working with abused children in the UK. Last year, Hedge Funds Care UK made grants to a number of charities including Red Balloon for their work with severely bullied children, Barnardos for their project working with sexually exploited girls and young women and CSV, a program that trains volunteers to work with young people coming out of care. The UK charity has raised over £1 million through its annual gala events and numerous summer and cultural events held over the last five years.

Robert Mirsky, Chairman, Hedge Funds Care UK, said: “This was another great event and I would like to thank our supporters for their enthusiasm and continued commitment. I look forward to joining forces again at future Hedge Funds Care events to continue to protect the most vulnerable in our society.”
