Baby2Baby
• Lead the Way Fund

March Of Dimes
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
• St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children

Among the celebrities that are expected to join BTIG this year are the following: Michael Strahan, Tom Coughlin, Victor Cruz, Justin Tuck, Eli Manning, Phil Simms, Joe Girardi, Mark Teixeira, Joe Torre, Reggie Jackson, Rex Ryan, Mark Sanchez, Nick Manchego, Lynn Swann, Petra Nemcova, Jeremy Roenick, Jim Boeheim, Steve Schrippa, Miss America Mallory Hagan, Kaitlin Monte, Hannah Storm and Michael J. Fox.

“We’re proud that our clients and employees have this opportunity to work together with our celebrity traders and other special guests to make such a profound impact on so many peoples’ lives,” said Steven Starker, Co-Founder of BTIG. “The excitement surrounding this year’s event is a strong indication that we will have another successful day. We look forward to being able to support a number of charities that are important to our clients and celebrity guests.”
