NEW YORK – April 4, 2012 – The San Francisco 49ers’ players, coaches, alumni, cheerleaders and team co-chairman John York will make a special appearance at the 11th Annual San Francisco “Open Your Heart to the Children” Benefit organized by Hedge Funds Care and the San Francisco 49ers Foundation. The theme of the event is “A Time for Heroes” in recognition of the outstanding football team and its foundation’s efforts to support child abuse prevention and treatment programs in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The event will be held on April 18th at 4:30pm PST at The Bentley Reserve (301 Battery Street San Francisco, CA). More than 400 hedge fund managers and investors are expected to attend the event which will feature cocktails, dinner, dessert, a silent auction, raffle and a wine-tasting with participation from more than 10 local wineries.
“This event gives the California hedge fund industry an unequaled opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to ending child abuse,” said event co-chair Elisabeth MacKnight, a Director of Business Development at Conifer, a San Francisco company that provides middle and back office support to hedge funds. Last year’s event raised $755,000 in contributions from more than 450 attendees.
Co-chair Peter Lardner, a Managing Director of Prime Brokerage Services at Goldman Sachs in San Francisco, praised the on-going support by the 49ers and its foundation. “This is the eleventh year that Hedge Funds Care and the 49ers have been in partnership to raise funds for this important cause,” said Mr. Lardner. “They have been with us from the beginning.” he added.
