Every year BTIG Australia , a financial services firm specialising in institutional trading and related brokerage services, holds their "Commissions for Charity Day".
The first of these days held in Australia was April 28th 2011.
Globally, BTIG traders donate a portion of their commissions from the day's trades to their chosen charities across the world.
Since 2011, BTIG Australia has supported Cure Our Kids as their charity of choice for the "Commissions for Charity Day", and raised over $170,000 in much needed funds.
As well as receiving this generous donation, each year young cancer patients and their families have the opportunity to visit BTIG's Sydney offices to experience the buzz of the trading floor and participate in other activities.
The CEO of Cure Our Kids Deb Ryan says, "Everyone involved thoroughly enjoys themselves. This is a wonderful initiative BTIG has undertaken and we're honoured to have been chosen as a BTIG charity. BTIG's generous contribution will enable us to continue helping families cope with the distress caused by childhood cancer."
This year, the day will be held on Tuesday 13th May 2014 and we encourage you to get involved...
