Last Wednesday, at Proper West, the alternative investment community
united at HFA's Spring Fling for ALTSO to raise awareness and funds for
long-time industry supported charity A
Leg To Stand On (ALTSO). Sponsored by Wilshire Phoenix, Seward &
Kissel LLP, and AlphaWeek, over $10,000 was raised at the event which
will support ALTSO’s mission of providing free, high-quality prosthetic
limbs and mobility aids to children in the developing world through the
age of 21.
“Wilshire Phoenix is extremely passionate and devoted not only to
helping each of our clients and investors reach their goals but also to
giving back. It was our pleasure to have co-hosted such a special event
alongside Seward and Kissel LLP and AlphaWeek, with special thanks to
Gregg Bateman and Greg Winterton, respectively for their unwavering
commitment to such an important cause. Thank you to Tim Seymour for his
continued support of ALTSO and to Frankie Edgar, who has a big heart in
and outside the ring. This HFA event brought together the financial
community to honor an incredible charity and best-in-class organization.
I look forward to further supporting ALTSO's CoolKids in the months and
years to come,” said Bill Herrmann, Managing Partner of Wilshire Phoenix.
This event is just one of many coming up globally for the charity.
