WASHINGTON -- Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) is continuing to speak out against child abuse, and is set to headline a charity event on Nov. 17 for the group Hedge Funds Care.

The invitation for the event at Boston's Children Museum promises "a very special appearance (in person or via live videoconference) by Senator Scott Brown, who will be honored for his courage earlier this year in sharing his own experience regarding abuse as a child."

"His revelation has led to a much larger awareness on both a local and national level regarding the issue of child abuse and the importance the funding we raise has to the continued work around preventing and treating child abuse," the invitation reads.

Since its founding 13 years ago, Hedge Funds Care has "rallied investment professionals ... and raised $40 million" to fight child abuse.

Brown is running against Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat who has been called "Wall Street's worst nightmare."
