San Francisco 49ers To Support Hedge Funds Care Benefit

Mar 24 2011 | 10:04am ET

The San Francisco 49ers’ players, coaches and cheerleaders will make a special appearance at the 10th Annual San Francisco Open Your Heart to the Children Benefit organized by Hedge Funds Care and the San Francisco 49ers Foundation.

Proceeds will be used by Hedge Funds Care to support child abuse prevention and treatment programs in the San Francisco Bay area. The event will be held on April 13th at The Bentley Reserve in San Francisco. More than 450 hedge fund managers and investors are expected to attend the event which will feature a wine-tasting of wines from some of California’s finest wineries.
 
“Child abuse remains a pervasive issue and support services for abused children are still greatly underfunded. The Hedge Funds Care benefit allows hedge funds and alternative investment industry service providers to support those children in need of assistance” said Todd Goldman, principal at Rothstein Kass and one of the co-chairs for this year’s benefit.
 
“The hedge fund industry is one of the most philanthropic groups out there. The generosity they have shown year after year to our organization has been astounding.  We are expecting this year’s Hedge Funds Care Gala to be one of our most successful in raising money to help kids in the Bay Area,” added Elisabeth MacKnight, director of business development at The Conifer Group and co-chair for this year’s San Francisco benefit.

Hedge Funds Care is an international charity supported largely by the alternative investment industry. Its sole mission is to support efforts to prevent and treat child abuse. Hedge Funds Care raises money, primarily through events, and awards grants in 12 major cities in the United States, Canada, the Cayman Islands, and the United Kingdom.
