Capital For Kids 2012


We are extremely honored to be a part of the Capital for Kids annual fundraising event in Dallas. This was our 6th year to be involved and each year it just keeps getting better and better! Capital for Kids is a network of volunteer professionals from within the investment management business dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children in need. Capital for Kids supports organizations that educate, protect and encourage the development of children in the North Texas area, and they also raise awareness of children in need of support.

“Investing in a Brighter Future…Deep in The Heart of Texas” was the tagline of the party this year and it was held at the Fashion Industry Gallery (FIG) on November 29th. It was a huge success with over 600 guests attending and most importantly, the event raised 1.127 million dollars for kids in need in North Texas! 99% of all sponsorship and donation dollars are given to the 37 grant recipients!

A special thanks to Rebecca Lorrine Photography for sharing these images with us.
