Bloomberg Tradebook will host its third annual Charity Day tomorrow, with celebrities on three continents joining Bloomberg employees and clients in trading activities to raise money for more than a dozen charities.

The net commissions earned on Thursday, October 30 will be donated to the participating charities. Celebrities will take client calls on the trading desk in New York, London – and for the first time this year – Hong Kong, to raise money and awareness for the worthy cause they represent. Tradebook’s San Francisco and Sao Paulo offices will also complete volunteer projects and participate remotely in Charity Day activities.

“The Bloomberg Tradebook team is extremely honored to welcome this year’s charities and their ambassadors for our third-annual Charity Day,” said Ray Tierney, President and CEO of Bloomberg Tradebook. “Charity Day gives us a great opportunity to raise awareness and funding for a diverse set of worthy causes. In our first two years, we raised $1.5 million for more than a dozen charities. By expanding Charity Day to London last year, and now Hong Kong, we are strengthening our ongoing commitment to supporting charitable organizations around the world that do so much for those in need.”

Charity Day is only one part of Bloomberg Tradebook’s ongoing commitment to supporting charitable organizations and initiatives throughout the year. The team is also activity involved in other events, such as, the Summer Fun Run to support the Great Ormond St. Hospital, the Teenage Cancer Trust’s Trois Etapes bike ride and fund-raising initiatives for St Jude’s Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House New York.
