Over the last two years, Wall Street Rocks has been able to raise over $350,000 for veteran’s charities and is looking to raise the bar. In attendance and showing her support for Wall Street Rocks was Madame Mayhem  who joined founding members Leslie Kirby, James Macedonio, and George Chrisafis at the fundraiser.
 
Wall Street Rocks is a collaboration of employees in the financial, technology and entertainment industries, who are passionate about giving support to heroic Americans who serve the nation, including military veterans and first responders. The organization is excited to be supporting Operation Finally Home for the first time, a non-profit that was founded in 2005 that provides custom-made mortgage free homes to wounded and disabled veterans and widows of the fallen, in an effort to get their lives back on track and become productive members of their communities.
 
Round 2 of Wall Street Rocks Battle of the Bands will taking place on September 18th at The Cutting Room in New York City, followed by the finale at Roseland Ballroom in NYC on Thursday, December 5th with a special performance that is to be announced.
