NEW YORK & MIAMI, August 18, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Funds Society, MFS and Ninety One are working together to raise funds for victims and families of the Surfside Tragedy in Miami; the event will be held on September 9, 6:30 p.m. ET in Miami.  

The collapse of Champlain Towers South at the Surfside condominium is a terrible loss and has lasting impact on the South Florida community and far beyond. Many in investment management know someone who has been tragically affected. The asset and wealth management industry is working to raise funds with proceeds going to the Global Empowerment Mission. The GEM is collecting for three distinct funds which support the residents themselves, relocation efforts for the survivors who lived in the building, and a general program on the collapse.
