RBC Capital Markets, LLC Hosts First BVMI Jeans Day


Recently, BVMI received a check from RBC Capital Markets, LLC, in New York City. Employees at the firm had chosen BVMI as the beneficiary of the Jeans Charity program, which raised more than $5,660 for BVMI.

“BVMI board member Mike Azzara kicked off the RBC BVMI Jeans Charity campaign with a visit to RBC Capital Markets in January 2016,” said Chris McCarthy of RBC. “At a packed trading floor meeting to start the day, Mike’s message and BVMI’s mission impressed us all. The result was an all-time Jeans Charity fundraising record. We appreciate BVMI’s national and local contribution to the healthcare system.” said Chris McCarthy of RBC.

“We are very grateful to the employees of RBC Capital Markets,” said Mike Azzara. “What a great way to raise money for a worthy cause – it’s something that everyone can feel good about participating in.” He added, “We encourage other companies to take up the challenge by hosting their own onsite fundraiser to benefit BVMI. It’s a great way to build team spirit and morale, while helping our hardworking neighbors in Bergen County to obtain access to healthcare.”

BVMI has created a Jeans Day toolkit which includes flyers, signage, suggested social media posts notifying the community of your organization’s support of BVMI, and stickers for your employees to show their Jeans Day pride!  Contact Samantha Poremba, BVMI Development Associate, at or (201) 518-8487 for more information.
