A Leg To Stand On's Rocktoberfest Events Return in Person to New York and Chicago

Alternative investment industry non-profit A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO)'s Rocktoberfest fundraising events returns to New York and Chicago in October, the first in-person editions of the events since 2019. The 11th Annual Rocktoberfest-Chicago will take place on October 13th at City Winery and the 19th Annual Rocktoberfest-NYC will be on October 20th at the Hard Rock Cafe.

This year’s events will each feature two stages of live music performed by financial services industry professionals who are coworkers by day and moonlight as rock stars. Event proceeds will provide prosthetic limbs, orthotic braces, and appropriately fitted wheelchairs to children living with limb disabilities across ten developing countries.

“During these unique times, know that the best investment you can make is in a child’s mobility. It provides an immediate, tangible impact and changes the entire course of their lives.” said ALTSO’s Executive Director, Gabriella Mueller-Evrard. “We are so grateful to our dedicated sponsors who continue to stand by us, our CoolKids, and their families through the pandemic. Doing so allowed us to fulfil our commitment to treat 1,772 CoolKids, providing them access to education, future employment, and the dignity mobility offers – effectively changing their futures.”
