West LA-based precious metal asset firm Rosland Capital on Monday participated in the 5 th Annual Walk for Warriors Memorial Day 5K presented by New Directions for Veterans and West LA Chamber of Commerce. Team Rosland Capital was deemed the top fundraising team at the event for the second time – raising a total of $10,045 in support of New Directions and combatting homeless among veterans in the local West Los Angeles community.
Rosland Capital CEO Marin Aleksov, one of yesterday’s participants, said, “We are proud to be the top “Walk for Warriors” fundraising team for two years. With the support of our employees, we donated more than $90,000 to charities nationwide in 2014 and proudly employ and support veterans in our community.”
Team Rosland Capital – comprised of Aleksov and 19 employees and family – was the top fundraising team for the second year in a row, with a total of $10,045 raised. The money will directly benefit New Directions’ cause: helping combat homelessness among veterans. During last year’s 5K, Team Rosland Capital raised more than $10,000 for New Directions at the event. Los Angeles has the largest population of homeless veterans in the nation and the V.A. estimates there are more than 4,000 homeless veterans living on the streets in the Greater LA area.
