Invest For Kids: Chicago's Investable Ideas Conference

Invest For Kids is modeled after the Ira Sohn Conference and features prominent hedge fund managers presenting their latest investment ideas to benefit local children in Chicago. Last year the event sold out and raised $800,000. 100% of the money raised directly benefits children via local charities so it's a great cause.

Invest For Kids will take place November 3rd at the Harris Theater in downtown Chicago from 2pm to 6pm with a cocktail reception afterward. Speakers include:

Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management
Larry Robbins of Glenview Capital
Meredith Whitney of Whitney Advisory Group
Sam Zell of Equity Group Investments
Joshua Friedman of Canyon Partners
William Browder of Hermitage Capital
John W. Rogers of Ariel Investments
Doug Silverman of Senator Investment Group
Richard Driehaus of Driehaus Capital
Brian Feltzin of Sheffield Asset Management
David Herro of Herris Associates
