March is a rewarding month for Eze Castle Integration because we have the opportunity to support two of our favorite philanthropic organizations – Hedge Funds Care and 100 Women in Hedge Funds – in their work to improve the lives of children around the world.
We have again signed on as a Hedge Funds Care global sponsor and are looking forward to attending this week’s Open Your Heart to the Children Benefit in NYC. This year the New York Committee of Hearts is awarding the HFC Founder's Award to former Yankees manager Joe Torre for his accomplishments with the Joe Torre Safe at Home Foundation, which is dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic violence.
Here is a video of Joe Torro talking about his experiences and foundation.>
At the end of the month (March 23 to be exact), Eze Castle Integration has the honor of sponsoring the 100 Women in Hedge Funds –Stanford PACs Conference, which is the first hedge fund conference to donate all net proceeds to philanthropy and focus on a double bottom line -- how investors can innovate both absolute and social returns.
Momentum around the conference is building and, as a committee member and Bostonian, I’m proud to see this one-of-a-kind conference being held in Boston. All conference proceeds will support The Alliance for a Healthier Generation organization, which was founded by President Clinton’s foundation and the American Heart Association. Plus, Seth Klarman, president of The Baupost Group, is the keynote speaker.
To whet your appetite, here is a great video of Seth Klarman discussing investing and philanthropy.
Last but not least, in preparation for this great event, Eze Castle Integration has committed to donate $1 to The Alliance for a Healthier Generation for every new ‘Like’ we receive on Facebook in March 2012. Like us now!
We hope you’ll consider supporting these worthy organizations as well.
