A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is ready to throw the non-profit organisation’s biggest party yet this Thursday, 25 October at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City to celebrate 15 years of their signature Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest and more than 17,000 patients treated as a result. 

Tickets are available online until noon EST on Thursday for USD275 and will be available at the door for USD350.

More than a dozen bands have been raising funds for the last several months on behalf of the charity and Friday afternoon, ALTSO announced the winning band, The Autopilots, who themselves raised nearly USD120,000 for the charity. The full lineup can be viewed here and alongside The Autopilots on the main stage will include The ALTSO All Stars, The Cause, Six Floors Under and New York Rock Exchange.

“We are thrilled to headline Rocktoberfest’s 15th anniversary concert, marking our third consecutive year supporting this wonderful cause. Looking forward to igniting the main stage this Thursday! Additionally, we would like to thank all of our generous sponsors and friends that helped make this possible. FUNDING SECURED,” says Bill “Clutch” Skutch, Head Trader of Scopus Asset Management and singer of The Autopilots.

“The team at Wilshire Phoenix could not be happier to announce the beginning of an ongoing partnership with A Leg To Stand On. Especially, during this important week, with the 15th Anniversary of Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest in NYC,” says Bill Herrmann, Founder & CEO of Wilshire Phoenix. “We are so proud to stand with the many incredible firms whom have already made a crucial impact on the lives of children across the world.”

Alongside corporate sponsors, Johnson & Johnson has selected ALTSO as a beneficiary of its Donate a Photo app, which commits to raise up to USD20,000 for the charity through 31 December. Rocktoberfest will host a Photo Booth, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, where every photo taken by a guest will earn USD1 for an ALTSO child in need.

Ready to rock? Pre-order your ALTSO GLOW stick, which will be available at the door for those who purchase in advance or during the event by volunteers headed up by the New York team at award winning executive search firm, GQR. Each GLOW stick purchased is a tax deductible donation that correlates to a treatment provided by ALTSO.

Guests will also have the opportunity to “Meet the CoolKids” at the event – an interactive activation where each attendee will get to learn more about the impact their support has on an ALTSO beneficiary.
