NYSE SmallOctagon CEO and CIO Mead Welles rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, October 20, 2017.

Mr. Welles was in New York to celebrate Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, the signature fundraiser for A Leg to Stand On (ALTSO), a charity Mr. Welles co-founded that provides free orthopedic care to children with limb disabilities whose families cannot afford treatment.

Rocktoberfest will be held on October 26th at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe, and unites 1,400+ professionals from the alternative investment industry for a night of rock & roll performed by industry leaders, in honor of more than 16,000 children ALTSO has treated.
