To all my friends in the Chicago futures world. Next week on Wednesday, October 8th we will be holding the third annual benefit for A Leg to Stand On at City Winery. We are proud to say we have sold over 200 tickets so far and have the generous support of corporate sponsors CME Group, CBOE, ICE, Russell Investments, ABN Amro, Drury Capital, and Jacobs Asset Management.
A Leg to Stand On does amazing work with a staff of only three people. Since inception ALTSO has helped over 12,000 children in developing countries with necessary surgery and prosthetic devices to lead more normal lives.
ALTSO is a non profit charity and your ticket sales and donations are tax deductible. There will be rock and roll entertainment from Jim McNulty, former CEO of CME, John Labuszewski, Steve Staszak and Bob Zaggotta from CME and yours truly and John Maher from TMG. Dina Bair from WGN television will be our Emcee for the evening.
In addition there will be great raffle prizes for massage therapy, pilates, acupuncture, dance lessons, personal training, Cubs tickets and much more.
Let’s show New York that Chicago can do better than they can! Last year at the NY ALTSO event we raised $400,000. Come on Chicago!!
Ticket prices include all drinks, food and music!
