On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, Blythedale Children's Hospital will team up with BTIG for the 14th annual BTIG Commissions for Charity Day, an event whereby the net commissions generated by BTIG are donated to hundreds of nonprofit organizations. Since the inception of this event, BTIG has donated more than $35 million to hundreds of charities, and Blythedale has received more than $250,000 over the last four years. This year, the funds will support the Hospital’s Child Life Department.
Charity Day is a special star-studded event in which the firm contributes one day’s net commission profits to charities, many of which are focused on improving the lives of children.

If you work in the institutional investment community or know someone who does, BTIG Commissions for Charity Day is a quick and easy way to raise funds for Blythedale. The success of the event is 100% dependent upon the trading volume sent to BTIG during the trading day. Most investment funds already have a trading relationship with BTIG, which makes raising funds very accessible to supporters. Existing BTIG trading clients simply need to request a 2016 BTIG Charity Day nomination form. Support Blythedale by sending your orders, whenever possible, to BTIG on May 10, 2016.

We are also pleased to announce that former New York Jets fullback and Hall of Famer Tony Richardson will be on hand that day, representing Blythedale and trading on the Hospital's behalf.
