ToneyKorf Partners, LLC (“ToneyKorf”) proudly sponsors BANKRUPT TALENT, an annual Rock & Roll musical benefit founded in 2009 by ToneyKorf’s own Randa Karambelas and officially named Bankrupt Talent in 2011. Originally started as a musical fundraiser to celebrate her birthday in a small cabaret club downtown, Bankrupt Talent has now evolved into an annual event at the famous Le Poisson Rouge.
To celebrate our anniversary and mark a special occasion, this year Gavin/Solmonese joins ToneyKorf to proudly present Bankrupt Talent: Celebrating 10 Years. With some fun things in store, including bringing back a list of Greatest Hits and adding new Rock & Roll favorites. Randa, our musical host, will join together with other past performers and new performers from the restructuring and insolvency community to raise awareness and support charity.
Our 10th Anniversary concert supports the Make A Film Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants film wishes to children who have serious or life-threatening medical conditions by teaming with noted Film and TV actors, directors and writers who help them create a film legacy. 100% of all ticket sales and donation will go directly to Make A Film Foundation.
