A Leg To Stand On announces Rocktoberfest-London sponsors
BNF Capital, SteelEye, Talan, Lyxor Asset Management, Kreston Reeves, Sandler Capital, Hentu, GlobeTax, Wavestone, Margo Group, and Equita have all been confirmed as sponsors of the 2nd annual Rocktoberfest-London which is due to take place on 19 June to raise funds for UK and US charity A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO).
Members of the hedge fund and private equity communities will come together for a night of live rock & roll entertainment, to support ALTSO’s mission of providing free prosthetic limbs, mobility aids, and wheelchairs to children in the developing world.
Since its foundation in 2002, ALTSO has helped to treat over 18,000 children with limb disabilities in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The money raised goes towards providing free orthopaedic care to children with congenital or traumatic limb disabilities in the developing world whose families, on average, survive on less than USD3 per day.
The line-up will feature bands whose performers are moonlighting from their day-jobs in high finance. The band which raises the most money gets to choose their spot on the bill. The London show mirrors events in New York and Chicago, in their 16th and 8th years respectively and will take place at 8 Northumberland Avenue, a former showpiece Victorian hotel with a rich history dating back to 1887.
Tickets are GBP150, a portion of which qualifies for Gift Aid, and include a five-hour open bar and hors d’oeuvres. They are available to purchase at altso.org/rocktoberfestlondon#tickets.
“It is with great pleasure that Talan participates in ALTSO’s Annual Rocktoberfest in both London and NYC again this year,” says Cécile Monico, MD Talan in the UK.
“Not only are we proud to be sponsors of such a meaningful organization, but we also love attending these events that are unlike any other,” says Fayna Lionet, MD Talan in the USA.
Gabriella Mueller Evrard, ALTSO’s Executive Director, says: “We are thrilled to be hosting London’s 2nd Rocktoberfest this June! Rocktoberfest-London provides a genuine opportunity for our global sponsors to maximise visibility to their target markets across three of the world’s foremost financial hubs (London, New York, and Chicago), while proactively supporting the life-changing treatments ALTSO provides its children.”
