Ibbo’s Kilt Challenge
Each year, FIA hosts the IDX Gala in aide of Futures for Kids, an organization that raises funds on behalf of the futures and options industry for charities that strive to provide better lives and futures for children internationally. Over the last ten years, the IDX Gala has raised more than £1.4 million for Futures for Kids, including through the Kilt Challenge.
Since 2010, various giants from the futures industry (to wit – John Lothian and Bill Herder) have accepted the sporran and the challenge to beat the previous year’s Kilt Challenge fundraising record. In 2017, the CME Group’s Kim Taylor beat the records set by the seven men that had taken on the Kilt Challenge – raising more than £13,500. After dropping a special note and a lipstick in the sporran, Kim challenged GH Financials’ Mark Ibbotson to don the kilt and beat her fundraising record!
Ibbo, a long-time supporter of Futures for Kids, is proudly taking on this fashion challenge and curious tradition for the kiddos – and is looking for your support in raising £14,000. Donate now to Ibbo's Kilt Challenge and support a fantastic charity, Futures for Kids.
