We are thrilled to be a part of the Capital for Kids annual fundraising event, which was held at the beautiful FIG, Fashion Institute Gallery  in Dallas. 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.  99% of all sponsorship and donation dollars are given to the 39 grant recipients.

This was our 7th year coordinating this very special event, and we’re very pleased to announce that it was an enormous success, breaking last year’s fundraising totals by raising a staggering $1.5 million, and welcoming record-breaking attendance as well! Over 800 guests enjoyed the evening’s fabulous cocktails, dinner and auction.
