sponsor the RBRR Team Tent Zone. On the day of the event, dozens of
HilltopSecurities’ DFW-area employees attended as volunteers and the
company’s live buffalo mascot, Mo, was also on hand to welcome visitors.
In addition to supporting Children’s Health, HilltopSecurities’
employees also volunteer their time with other health care/youth-related
community involvement efforts including the Ronald McDonald House, the
U.S. Marine Corps Reserves’ Toys for Tots program, the Susan G. Komen
Foundation, and Dallas’ Phoenix House, a leading nonprofit drug and
alcohol treatment provider for adolescents.
