The Finance Community in Chicago Will Come Together To Perform Live Rock & Roll Music
To Raise Funds For Children With Limb Disabilities in Emerging Market Countries
A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) will hold its third annual Rocktoberfest-Chicago on Wednesday, October 8 at City Winery at 1200 W. Randolph Street in Chicago. Financial industry professionals will perform rock and roll music to raise funds for ALTSO, which provides prosthetic limbs and corrective, life-altering surgeries to children with limb disabilities in emerging market countries, and has improved the lives of more than 12,000 children worldwide. The net proceeds raised will be allocated to ALTSO's programs in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
"This is my first year getting involved with A Leg To Stand On and I can't wait to be part of such a unique and fun event," said Dina Bair of WGN-TV and ALTSO's event emcee in Chicago. "When I heard about the amazing work that ALTSO has been able to do I couldn't help but join the team to help Chicago come together to raise even more for the charity and the children they treat."
"A Leg To Stand On's Rocktoberfest-Chicago is one of my favorite events to attend every year," said Jim McNulty. "I'm honored to be able to do my part in bringing together the Chicago finance community both for a great night of live music and to bring even more treatments to children with limb disabilities in emerging market countries through ALTSO's programs."
"Our band, Rock Island Line, loves playing at this event and are honored to continue to be part of the ALTSO team here in Chicago," said Ray McKenzie, Head of the Rocktoberfest–Chicago Committee. "It has been inspiring to see the corporate sponsors who have brought in their support and we hope that even more Chicago companies will join us next week at City Winery to back ALTSO's work."
This year's band lineup will include Hayes-McNulty, Rock Island Line, The Simpletones, The Stone Daddies and The Wrong Boys, and all star finance professionals from the Chicago community.
