From A Leg To Stand On:

The charity A Leg To Stand On (“ALTSO”) is excited to announce the launch of its 1st Annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest-Chicago.  Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest started in New York City in 2004 by ALTSO’s co-founder, C. Mead Welles, a hedge fund manager who wanted to create an event that combined his love for music and helping people.  In its 9th year, Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest-NYC is arguably the most unique and highly anticipated fundraising benefit in both the finance and charity industries, uniting over 1,000 professionals from the hedge fund and related financial services industries for a night of rock-and-roll and acoustic music performed by industry leaders in support of ALTSO’s mission. 

ALTSO is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in NYC that provides free prosthetic limbs and corrective surgery to children in developing countries who have lost their limbs in traumatic accidents or were born with limb deformities.  Since 2002, ALTSO has treated more than 8,000 children and currently operates 16 programs in 14 emerging market countries.

ALTSO’s 1st Annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest-Chicago will be held on October 25th from 7pm – 11pm at City Winery (200 West Randolph Street, Chicago).  The organization is currently seeking musicians from the finance industry to perform at this inaugural event.  To learn more about this opportunity, or to purchase tickets, please visit, or contact the following event organizers: Ray McKenzie ( or Gabriella Mueller (
