SUPPORT BLYTHEDALE – TRADE WITH BTIG ON APRIL 28TH
Blythedale Children’s Hospital is pleased to once again be an eligible charity of BTIG’s Annual Commissions for Charity Day on Tuesday, April 28th.
This is a special, star-studded event during which the firm donates one day's net commission profits to charity. Celebrities join BTIG employees to work the phones and raise funds for hundreds of non-profit organizations, particularly those focused on children. Last year, Blythedale received a $75,000 donation as a result of trades made on its behalf.
The success of the day is 100% driven by how much business institutional accounts choose to do with BTIG on that day. If you work for a firm that is already a BTIG client, please consider asking it to trade for Blythedale on April 28th. If your firm is not currently a BTIG client, it can become one just for the day so that Blythedale will receive commissions.
Last year, Blythedale President & CEO Larry Levine and Chief Development Officer Jane MacDonald joined Blythedale Trustees Darren Fogel, Alan Gerstein and Farrel Starker, and Farrel's husband and BTIG Co-Founder Steven Starker at the star-studded event. Celebrity "guest-traders", including New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi, and former and current players Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, CC Sabathia, and Mark Teixeira, as well as New York Giants Quarterback Eli Manning, NBA great Shaquille O'Neal, NY Mets David Wright and Matt Harvey, and supermodel Petra Nemcova, helped raise money for a variety of children's charities, including Blythedale.
"All of us at Blythedale are incredibly grateful to BTIG, and Steve and Farrel, to have the opportunity to participate in this exciting and unique event," said Blythedale President & CEO Larry Levine. "We are truly honored to again be named as one of the beneficiaries."
Also on hand enjoying the festivities were former patients Nicole Graham and Peter Steinberg, and current patient Mathew Miller, along with their families. Dozens of celebrities stopped to visit with Blythedale's kids, graciously signing autographs and posing for pictures.
Since first hosting Commissions for Charity Day in 2003, BTIG has raised more than $30 million and has donated those proceeds to over 250 nonprofit organizations.
