Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest WildCard Play-Off

This year marks the sixth anniversary of A Leg To Stand On’s annual benefit, Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, being held at B.B. King Blues Club in New York on Thursday, October 8. This event unites a rapidly growing number of A Leg To Stand On supporters for a unique night of rock-and-roll performances by members of the hedge fund and financial communities.

The Rocktoberfest Wildcard Play-Off is being held tomorrow, September 16 at Sullivan Hall in New York, where four bands made up of hedge fund and related industry professionals will battle it out to perform at Rocktoberfest.

Since 2004, Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest has proudly served as A Leg To Stand On’s signature fundraising benefit. Due in large part to the support received through this one night, A Leg To Stand On has been able to directly help over 3,000 children through the provision of free corrective surgeries and prosthetic and orthotic devices.

An estimated 10,000 children have been helped through A Leg To Stand On’s training workshops, aimed at teaching innovative best-practices in orthopedic care to in-country medical providers. In January of 2009, A Leg To Stand On committed to helping a total of 11 project partners in Haiti, Nigeria, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
