A Leg To Stand On Welcomes Back Rocktoberfest Sponsor Element Capital & More!

Rocktoberfest, the annual fundraiser for children's charity A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO), will unite over 2,000 professionals in NYC and Chicago from the alternative investments and finance industry for live rock & roll and acoustic music, featuring over a dozen bands whose talented performers are industry leaders.

This year’s 12th Annual Rocktoberfest-Chicago will take place on October 5th at City Winery; the organization’s milestone 20th Annual Rocktoberfest-NYC will take place on October 19th at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Sponsorships for the event are filling up with more than 16 companies already committed to rock for good this October: Element Capital, the Exclusive Guest Sponsor of Rocktoberfest-NY; ADM Investor Services, the Exclusive Guest Sponsor of Rocktoberfest-Chicago; SteelEye, the Exclusive Photo Booth Sponsor of Rocktoberfest-NYC; CME Group, NYSE, Berenberg Capital, Citi, Jefferies, Liquidnet, Nomura, Piper Sandler & Co, Quanteam, Stifel, Barchart, Wedbush, and more.

A favorite amongst all who have attended since the organization launched their signature event 20 years ago, nearly 90% of this year’s sponsors are repeat supporters. Here’s what a few said about ALTSO’s mission and the celebrated event:

Element Capital: Rocktoberfest-NYC Sponsor Since 2017.

Looking forward to rocking for good!

“We are counting down the days until we rock for good with our peers again this October,” said Rich Walz, General Counsel of Element Capital. “Our team eagerly awaits this unique and high-energy event year after year. Supporting a cause that improves the health and well-being of children, alleviates poverty, and empowers our next generation is central to Element Capital’s commitment to social impact.”

Wedbush: Rocktoberfest-Chicago Sponsor Since 2016.

Supporting eight years and counting.  

“Wedbush sponsoring Rocktoberfest initially seemed like support for a local charity, but we have come to understand this local effort is part of something much bigger and truly special,” said Bob Fitzsimmons, EVP Wedbush Securities Inc. “For eight years, we have witnessed our impact on the lives of these children and their families and are proud to sponsor this year once again.”

Barchart: Rocktoberfest-Chicago Sponsor Since 2021.

Making a positive impact.
