A Leg to Stand On’s (ALTSO) Rocktoberfest unites over 400 leaders from the alternative investments and financial services industries for a night of rock & roll and acoustic music, featuring bands whose talented performers are industry members. The event originated in New York twelve years ago and now celebrates its fifth anniversary in Chicago.

Rocktoberfest gathers colleagues, friends, current and prospective clients for what has been recognized as one of the most unique, highly anticipated and effective events in the charitable and finance sectors. This year’s event will celebrate the continued mission of ALTSO and the 15,000 children treated to date.

ALTSO provides free prosthetic limbs and corrective surgery to children suffering from traumatic or congenital limb disabilities in the developing world – at an average cost of only $250 per child. ALTSO stands behind the children they help until they turn 18. The average ALTSO family earns about $3 a day, and lives approximately 1 to 3 miles away from the closest school. With no access to transportation, if a child can’t walk, they simply can’t go to school. If they can’t go to school, they can’t get a job. If they can’t get a job, they can’t sustain a family. This is the reality for children with untreated limb disabilities in the developing world.
