BTIG LLC, a global financial services firm specializing in institutional trading and related brokerage services, will host its 12th Commissions for Charity Day on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

The annual BTIG Commissions for Charity Day is a celebrity-filled event. During the day celebrity participants join BTIG traders in an effort to raise money for a variety of charities.

BTIG pioneered its first Commissions for Charity Day in 2003 raising funds for three charities. Over the past eleven years, BTIG’s Commissions for Charity Day has grown into an international event, with BTIG US, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia offices participating. More than $28 million in commission profits have been donated to hundreds of charitable organizations around the world since the inception of the event.

Last year, BTIG donated over $4 million to more than 170 nonprofit organizations. While the charities supported are nominated by BTIG clients, the firm encourages clients to select child-focused charities. This year’s nominees include, among many others:
Project Sunshine
St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children
• The First Tee of San Francisco
• The Jackie Robinson Foundation
Year Up

Celebrities that have participated in past Commissions for Charity Day events include: Michael J. Fox, Michael Strahan, Matt Dillon, Joe Girardi, Mariano Rivera, Mark Teixeira, Tom Coughlin, Rex Ryan and Eli Manning in New York City; Ronnie Lott, Joe Morgan, Marshawn Lynch and Vida Blue in San Francisco; Marcus Allen and Tony Gonzalez in Los Angeles; and Mike Gatting OBE, Chris Tarrant OBE, Brian Conley, Aled Jones MBE and Sinitta in London.

“BTIG’s Commissions for Charity Day provides our clients and employees with a unique opportunity to work in collaboration with celebrity guests to affect meaningful change,” said Steven Starker, Co-Founder of BTIG. “The dedicated work of the charities that BTIG’s Commissions for Charity Day supports and of all those involved in Charity Day, re-inspires us with renewed enthusiasm for the event every year.”
