2020 Virtual Rocktoberfest
10/22/2020 @ 19:00 - 21:00
A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) will be hosting this year’s London, Chicago, & New York Rocktoberfest fundraising events via one combined virtual event, gathering supporters virtually from around the globe. The event will be held from 7pm to 9pm EST and is open to the public to register and attend.
ALTSO’s Virtual Rocktoberfest, as done at the historic in-person events, will feature bands made up of leaders from the financial services and hedge fund industries for a night of rock ‘n roll. The event brings together colleagues, clients, friends, and family in honor of ALTSO’s mission to provide free, high-quality prosthetic limbs, orthotic devices, and appropriately fitted wheelchairs to children in emerging market countries. This year’s event will also raise critical funding for the organization’s COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Recognized as one of the most unique and effective events in the philanthropic and alternative investment industries, Rocktoberfest rockers have helped transform the lives of nearly 20,000 CoolKids around the globe. Executive Director Gabriella Mueller-Evrard notes that, “We knew that we can not let the shift in our ability to safely gather prevent us from rocking for good and bringing life-changing treatment, and the necessary PPE to do so, to children whose families earn less than $3 a day, on average. Our responsibility to those we serve has never been more critical.”
ALTSO’s COVID-19 Relief Fund was launched in order to provide much needed sanitizing equipment and PPE to their patients, and program providers. “It was important that we never made our CoolKids compromise between choosing their health or their mobility,” said AJ Warco, ALTSO’s Director of Programs.
ALTSO’s Virtual Rocktoberfest 2020 will be an interactive rock concert, open to all to attend and family friendly, all while raising funds funds for ALTSO’s CoolKids.
