Rock’n’Roll with a Philanthropic twist.
ALTSO’s 10th Annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, held on October 23rd at Capitale, was ALTSO’s biggest and grandest event to date, with over 1,400 attendees from some of the world’s most respected financial institutions and strong support from major corporate, beverage and merchandise sponsors. The event’s line up of rock bands and acoustic acts spotlighted hedge fund industry leaders who performed to raise funds for ALTSO, which offers free treatment to children in developing countries who have lost their limbs in traumatic accidents or suffer from congenital limb disabilities. The event raised $400,000, and 100% of the net proceeds will benefit ALTSO’s life-changing medical programs in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
From yellow to green to red to BLUES , it was a night to remember.
