Hedge Funds Care to host golf day
Hedge Funds Care UK will hold its annual London Golf Day at the Grove Golf Course in Hertfordshire on Wednesday, October 3 in what is likely to be a record fundraising year for the charity.
The charity, established by Robert Mirsky, head of the hedge funds group at KPMG, has raised north of £1 million for various children’s charities since inception in 2006. Beneficiaries include Barnardo’s, BeatBullying, Family Matters, Imara and Eaves for Women, all of which work closely with vulnerable or abused children.
Hedge Funds Care Summer Showcase, held earlier in July at Lancaster House, helped raise £15,000. The event also saw a pair of Olympic Taekwondo Final tickets auctioned off for £500. This latest effort comes not long after the annual Spring Fling back in March, which raised £12,000.
The charity raised a record £400,000 in 2011.
