New York (Hedgeco.net) - Grammy winning Haitian-American rapper, actor, film producer and activist, and a member of hip hop trio The Fugees, Prakazrel Samuel Michel, better known as Pras, will perform at children’s charity A Leg To Stand On’s annual fundraiser, Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, on October 13 at 583 Park Avenue in New York City.
Pras first became aware of ALTSO’s work through his interest in Haiti. ALTSO was already working in Haiti prior to the earthquake in January 2010, but in the wake of the disaster and in response to the obvious need, it further ramped up its efforts. Pras will be performing at this year’s Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest.
Including Haiti ALTSO currently has 19 programs in 15 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America. “We are truly honored that Pras is willing to use his time and talent to get involved with ALTSO,” says ALTSO’s co-founder, hedge fund manager C. Mead Welles. “The magnitude of what we can achieve in terms of truly transforming these children’s lives through simple surgical procedures and the providing of prosthetics is just incredible. Pras sees that and we are delighted he wants to be a part of it.”
