Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest
ALTSO's signature Rocktoberfest events unite more than 2,000 leaders from the hedge fund and finance industries for a night of rock & roll and acoustic music performed by key players in the hedge fund industry to help ALTSO treat children suffering from limb disabilities.
ALTSO's 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. The funds raised 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 more than 13,000 children around the world. In addition to our New York City event, we are proud to welcome the fourth Annual Rocktoberfest-Chicago into our events calendar.
