Counting crows and JJ Grey & Mofro to perform at Help for Children benefit concert to fight child abuse

Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - On Thursday, October 18, Help For Children will host HFC Rocks at the Hammerstein Ballroom (at The Manhattan Center), with the Counting Crows - fresh of their 25 Years and Counting Tour - headlining and JJ Grey & Mofro opening for HFC's 2nd annual benefit concert to fight child abuse.

Joining Ellington Management as HFC Rocks presenters are Wheelock Street Capital, along with Fortress Investment Group, Galaxy Investment Partners, Goldman Sachs Gives, Graham Capital Management, Paloma Partners, Pershing Square Capital, and Starwood Capital Group, the concert brings together the hedge fund, private equity, and broader alternative asset management industries for a night of live music. All proceeds from the evening support HFC's tireless efforts to prevent and treat child abuse in the New York metropolitan area.

"HFC Rocks is an exciting and important event for HFC, which was founded twenty years ago right here in New York City," said Dean Backer, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and Chair of the HFC Global Board. "Proceeds from this special night help amplify HFC's ability to protect and heal vulnerable children throughout the New York area, and we are incredibly grateful to Mike Vranos of Ellington Management for his ongoing leadership with our second annual benefit concert and, of course, as a HFC Global Board member."

"HFC's Executive Director and CEO Renée Skolaski is an exceptional steward in the fight against child abuse," said Mike Vranos, CEO of Ellington Management Group and HFC Global Board member. "I am pleased to partner with Renee and her team on HFC's second annual rock concert and look forward to having a great evening with both new and old HFC friends and industry colleagues."

"As a New York-based investment firm, HFC's fight against child abuse in NYC and abroad is a cause that Wilshire Phoenix is committed to investing in," said William Herrmann, founder and CEO, Wilshire Phoenix, a HFC Rocks Supporting Sponsor. "Our company has made an unwavering commitment to giving back 10% of all profits to charity and are thrilled to count Help For Children as one of Wilshire Phoenix's charity partners. We encourage all of our peers to join us in the global fight against child abuse."

HFC is an international foundation with one overriding mission - the prevention and treatment of child abuse. Established in 1998, HFC has grown from a single fundraising event in New York City to a global foundation that operates in seven countries in 13 cities. Over the past twenty years, HFC has provided more than $51 million in grants to organizations that protect and heal children.
