Wall Street Rocks is a unique collaboration of employees across the financial, technology and entertainment industry focused on supporting heroic Americans who serve our nation. From brave soldiers deployed around the world who protect our freedoms, to first responders who selflessly venture into dangerous emergency situations here at home, these courageous men and women have our backs every day. And now, Wall Street Rocks has their backs.
Wall Street Rocks will be putting together and hosting entertainment-based fundraising events throughout the year. Events that are designed to bring people together to raise awareness, and most importantly, to raise money for outstanding nonprofit organizations who help our heroes.
The Twist?…These are not your typical fundraising events. At Wall Street Rocks, the events that you can expect to see and hear will be filled with entertainment, from well-known artists and performers to talented musicians and bands who work hard for their firms during the day and then break loose at night, performing and playing in and around the tri-state area.
For Wall Street Rocks and its volunteers, life is not just about spreadsheets and the bottom line. We believe in honoring the brave folks who serve America by giving to the charities that give back to them and their families. Together, we can make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of those who have already given so much to this country.
We believe the most effective approach is to partner with non-profit organizations that have a proven track record in getting help to where it is needed most. Our events benefit organizations such as The Wounded Warriors Project, Reserve Aid and other veteran and first responder charities– organizations that do remarkable and much-needed work on behalf of military veterans, first responders and their families.
