"This year's Hedge Funds Care Annual Northeast Golf Tournament is going to be the best yet by far," said Glen Dailey, Managing Director, Jefferies & Co.  "While we will have a great time playing a few holes with friends and colleagues, and may even win some exceptional prizes, the most important thing to remember is that the money we raise with this tournament will truly make a difference in the lives of children who suffer from child abuse and neglect."  Sponsorships and only a very limited number of foursomes and spots for single golfers are still available.
