From A Leg To Stand On:
The annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest benefiting A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) has been recognized as one of the most unique and highly anticipated fundraising events in both the charitable and financial sectors. ALTSO’s signature event unites more than 1,000 leaders from the hedge fund and related financial services communities for a night of rock ‘n roll and acoustic music performed by industry professionals – to help ALTSO treat more children.
ALTSO provides free prosthetic limbs, corrective surgery, orthotic devices and rehabilitative care to children who have lost limbs in traumatic accidents or suffer from congenital limb disabilities. They work in countries where there is a staggering need for orthopedic treatment due to landmines, violence, and most simply – poverty.
