Hedge Fund Managers Support New Charity

Nov 10 2006 | 11:31am ET

A new charity with a novel approach to helping children was officially launched in New York on Thursday. MostValubleKids.org, which is supported by an A-list of financial gurus, including many hedge fund managers, collects unused tickets to sporting events and artistic performances, and distributes them to sick and underprivileged children.

“This gives the children a chance to go to a game or a show that they otherwise wouldn’t ever be able to attend,” says Carolyn Spector, executive director. 

If you or your company has any tickets that you won’t be using, please visit www.MostValubleKids.org to find out how you can help. Donations, including the value of the tickets, are tax deductible.
