BOCA RATON, Fla. and CHICAGO, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Incapital, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, today announced that it raised nearly $17,000 through a silent auction last week to benefit victims devastated by the Oklahoma tornados.
"Countless Oklahoma residents have been affected by this horrific tragedy and we are committed to helping by offering this donation," said John Radtke, CEO of Incapital. "It is our hope we will be able to assist the Oklahoma community in any way possible as they begin to recover."
