Hedge Funds Care was founded by Rob Davis in 1998 who created a coalition
of hedge fund industry professionals, with a mission to prevent child
abuse and provide effective treatment to those who have been victimized.
The funds they raise are used in several ways. One is to provide
grants to existing programs that either prevent or treat abuse. Another
is to use funds for professional training community awareness, and
much needed child advocacy and research.
The growth of this philanthropy has been remarkable. Their first
fund-raising dinner dance in 1999 raised $542,000. Last year’s
raised more than $1 million. Now they are planning benefits in San
Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta and Toronto this year.
Robert Schultz and Richard Portogallo were the Committee of Hearts

17th, the New-York Historical Society hosted a VIP opening reception
its newest exhibition: Audubon's Aviary.
The reception was hosted by Somers Farkas, Pat Altschul and the Chairman
of the Board of Trustees, Nancy Newcomb. Over 350 people attended the reception,
which was held in Dexter Hall where the exhibition is on view.
The exhibit showcases one of the Historical Society's prized posessions: John
J. Audubon's original watercolors for his world renowned work Birds
40 of his watercolors are hung in the exhibit, along with natural birdsounds
that are projected from small speakers below each painting. There
are also 'fly-over' sounds that eminate from speakers along the ceiling
of the room. Due to the sensitivitiy of the paintings to light, the exhibit
is on view for only six weeks from now until March 27th.
