Ellington Management, Wheelock Street Capital Present 3rd Annual HFC Rocks

On Thursday, September 26, Help For Children will host the 3rd Annual HFC Rocks to Fight Child Abuse at the newly-renovated Terminal 5 in New York City. The evening, presented by Ellington Management and Wheelock Street Capital, will feature an exclusive, live performance by ultimate punk pioneer and rock-and-roll icon Billy Idol, and his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens.

Leading the list in formation of supporters from the hedge fund, private equity, and broader alternative investment sectors are the following funds – Galaxy Investment Partners, Mount Yale, Paloma Partners, Skybridge Capital, Starwood Capital and Sun Capital Partners. Their early commitment to underwrite the benefit concert is helping unite an entire industry for a night of Billy Idol’s greatest hits and to put an end to child abuse by protecting and healing vulnerable children. All proceeds from the evening support HFC’s tireless efforts to fight child abuse in the New York metropolitan area.

“In the three years since its inception, HFC Rocks has become the highlight of our year, and one of Help For Children’s premier events,” said Dean Backer, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs and Chair of the HFC Global Board. “This year, with Billy Idol performing, it is going to be a particularly unforgettable night in the fight against child abuse, and we are extremely grateful to Michael Vranos of Ellington Management for spearheading this effort on behalf of HFC.”

“Again this year, HFC Rocks will provide funding to support Help For Children's team of academic experts in the prevention and treatment of child abuse. It’s going to be a great crowd coming out for a night of live music with Billy Idol!,” said Mike Vranos, CEO of Ellington Management Group and HFC Global Board member.
