New York Hedge Fund Industry Raises $10,000 for ALTSO

The New York alternative investment community united at the Hedge Fund Association's 'Spring Fling for ALTSO' event at Proper West in Manhattan to raise awareness and funds for long-time industry supported charity A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO). Sponsored by Wilshire Phoenix, Seward & Kissel LLP, and AlphaWeek, over $10,000 was raised at the event which will support ALTSO’s mission of providing free, high-quality prosthetic limbs and mobility aids to children in the developing world through the age of 21.

“Wilshire Phoenix is extremely passionate and devoted not only to helping each of our clients and investors reach their goals but also to giving back. It was our pleasure to have co-hosted such a special event alongside Seward and Kissel LLP and AlphaWeek, with special thanks to Gregg Bateman and Greg Winterton, respectively for their unwavering commitment to such an important cause. Thank you to Tim Seymour for his continued support of ALTSO and to Frankie Edgar, who has a big heart in and outside the ring. This HFA event brought together the financial community to honor an incredible charity and best-in-class organization. I look forward to further supporting ALTSO's CoolKids in the months and years to come,” said Bill Herrmann, Managing Partner of Wilshire Phoenix.

This event is just one of many coming up globally for the charity. Tickets are available now for UK, NYC and Chicago 'Rocktoberfest' events. More information can be found here.
