Hedge fund honchos poured some $2.4 million into educational programs for underprivileged children at the Fifth Annual 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala, held at New York’s Cipriani restaurant last week.

“Over the past five years, 100 Women in Hedge Funds has raised over $10 million for causes in the areas of women’s health, education and mentoring,” the group’s president, Amanda Pullinger of Aquamarine Capital Management, said.

The fund raised at the gala will go to Teach for America and Building with Books.

At the party, 100 Women bestowed its Effecting Change Award on Carl Icahn, and its Industry Leadership Award on D.E. Shaw managing director Anne Dinning.
