"We are an enthusiastic sponsor and heartfelt supporter of ALTSO," said David Lyon, founder and CEO of Oranj. "ALTSO and Rocktoberfest are a great fit for Oranj. We love helping children, music is the backbone of our culture, and we're part of the financial industry. We've been sponsoring Rocktoberfest and holding fundraisers for ALTSO since 2017, and every year our support grows. It's a company-wide passion and all our employees participate."

"We hope our colleagues in the financial industry will join us as a sponsor or attendee at Rocktoberfest-Chicago to help ALTSO," continued Lyon. "You can't find a finer, more gratifying charity to help make a difference in the lives of children. ALTSO provides mobility for children, which in turn brings them empowerment, self-esteem and the chance to pursue their dreams."

Throughout the past three years, Oranj has held Casino Night fundraisers for ALTSO at Oranj's music-themed office in Chicago. This year Oranj also hosted a pre-Rocktoberfest fundraiser highlighting the "CoolKids" of ALTSO with a World Wine Tasting event that featured wines and food pairings from around the globe.
