Editor's Note: Hedge Fund Managers Rock!

Oct 20 2006 | 5:10pm ET

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the wonderful charity A Leg To Stand On at last night’s truly-rocking Rocktoberfest. The organization, which was founded by hedge fund manager Mead Welles to provide prosthetic limbs to children in developing countries, raised over $250,000 at the event.

Over 1,000 people packed the sold-out show, which literally featured a lineup of rock star hedge fund managers. By day, most of the performers manage money, but when they turn off their trading screens, they turn on the music.

Performances included sets by bands JAM Partners, Bull Path Jammers, Aged Inventory, The Cause, The Subscribers, StoneHedge and Miles To Go. Chris Barron, formerly of The Spin Doctors, played on a second stage to the packed house.

All proceed from the event go to A Leg To Stand On’s orthopedic medical programs in India, Colombia, Latvia, and Haiti, which provide prosthetic limbs to children.

And a note to all those hedge fund managers who took to the stage: If things don't work out in money management, you can always fall back on a singing career. (Seriously, those khaki-clad hedgies were good!)

Kind regards,

Deirdre Brennan
Managing Editor
