Since 2004, ALTSO's Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest Events have raised over $3.2 million to treat children with limb disabilities in the developing world.
HOW IT CAME TOGETHER
a leg to stand on's annual hedge fund rocktoberfest has been recognized as one of the most unique and highly anticipated fundraising events in both the charitable and financial sectors.
hedge fund rocktoberfest started in 2004 with an industry-wide "call to instruments." musicians response was so positive and immediate that the inaugural hedge fund rocktoberfest was held on october 12, 2004 at planet hollywood in new york city. more than 50 musicians performed six hours of classic rock for a crowd of 700 people. generous donations from corporate sponsors and individuals helped altso evaluate more than 150 children and provide them with prostheses and orthoses. this money also helped us establish local manufacturing infrastructure for the production of prosthetics in our pilot project in india, and provide training in new york and boston for orthopedic professionals from india.
now in its twelfth year, hedge fund rocktoberfest-nyc has been instrumental in enabling altso to provide treatment to over 13,000 children around the world. in addition to our new york city event, we are proud to welcome the 4th annual rocktoberfest-chicago into our charitable events calendar.
the event has been covered by some of the world's top media - including the new york times. the wall street journal, cnbc, reuters, financial times, and bloomberg - with media coverage increasing every year.
