Impact Communications Signs On As Exclusive Press Partner for Eighth Annual Rocktoberfest-Chicago

​Marie Swift, President and CEO of Impact Communications (Impact), a full-service marketing and public relations firm established in 1993 to exclusively serve independent financial advisors and allied institutions, today announced that her company has signed on as the exclusive press partner for the eighth annual Rocktoberfest in Chicago, which will be held on Oct. 10, 2019, at the City Winery. Festivities begin at 7 p.m. The fundraiser will benefit A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO). ALTSO is a non-profit organization working in the developing world, bringing free orthopedic care to children whose families cannot afford treatment and prosthetic limbs.

My team and I are focused daily on helping our clients stand out in a crowded field. What better way to stand out than to be a rock & roll star for a night? Better yet, to be participating not just for ego and fun but to benefit a really great cause.

"My team and I are focused daily on helping our clients stand out in a crowded field," said Swift. "What better way to stand out than to be a rock & roll star for a night? Better yet, to be participating not just for ego and fun but to benefit a really great cause. We were introduced to this cause and invited into the fold by one of our fintech clients, Oranj, a Chicago-based firm that has long supported ALTSO. Oranj is a lead sponsor of this year's Rocktoberfest event, sponsoring the VIP Room. We are, of course, excited to hear the Oranj Crush band play and to see our other friends and colleagues at Rocktoberfest-Chicago. More importantly, we hope to spread the word within the financial services industry and to get more people involved - whether that is as a ticket buyer, a sponsor or a member of the press."

Journalists, television, radio and video crews are invited to attend the event without cost. To request a press pass, please contact: ImpactMediaManager@ImpactCommunications.org or call 913-649-5009 and ask for someone on Impact's media relations team.
