Bedford Hills, NY – Southpoint Capital Advisors’ Fifth Annual Charitable Golf Outing resulted in charitable proceeds of over $700,000 directed to two non-profit organizations on a mission to honor the sacrifices of those who have laid down their lives to save others. Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots) and Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation each received $350,000 in donations on Tuesday, July 10 at GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, New York.
“Southpoint Capital has generated awareness for the mission and raised nearly $700,000 in funding, providing 112 years of college to our Gold Star scholars,” said David Kim, co-founder and CEO of Fallen Patriots. “We are honored and grateful to Ben Carter and all the wonderful people at Southpoint for their support.”
“We are honored to have the opportunity to support the families of veterans who have given everything to our country and to our way of life. It is our privilege to be able to lend a hand to these young men and women who are aspiring to lift themselves up from tragedy and fulfill the dreams of their fallen loved ones. We believe the mission of Children of Fallen Patriots is perfectly aligned to the goals we hope to achieve,” said Ben Carter, Partner for Southpoint Capital Advisors and member of Fallen Patriots’ board of directors.
Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation was also a recipient of a $350,000 donation. The Foundation is inspired by firefighter Stephen Siller’s heroic death on September 11, 2001. Siller lived by the inspirational phrase ‘while we have time, let us do good.’ His legacy continues through the impact the foundation makes on fallen first responders and military service members and their families.
The 5th annual charitable golf outing was made possible by Southpoint Capital team members Melissa Mangan, Josh Clark, Anthony Buffalano, Adam Nemser, Ross Gough, and generous donations from sponsors including presenting sponsors Rice Voelker and Jones Trading.
