Many lucky guests were treated to an evening of fine wine and dining while raising money to support mental health services. Hosted by Jeremy Goldstein, Jim Finkel, and Omar Khan, this event was a benefit for the Fountain House, an organization committed to helping people recover from mental illness. Held at the Roofdeck of the Nomad Hotel, the dinner delighted guests by featuring some of the most exclusive vintages of Chateau Latour wine.
Founded in 1944, the Fountain House provides essential support to people living with mental illness through a variety of fundraising efforts and care initiatives. For more than 70 years, the New York City-based organization has been instrumental in providing care to thousands of mental health sufferers through the three-prong Education, Health Care, and Housing initiatives.
One of the primary programs hailed by the Fountain House is the Fountain House Employment initiative. This program works to help its members find gainful employment, effectively negating one of the most widespread problems of people suffering from mental illness issues. The Fountain House seeks to help members cultivate new friendships, gain self confidence, acquire valuable life skills, and find employment through counseling and educational opportunities. The vast housing network supported by Fountain House helps over 500 people per year find a place to live. The Health & Wellness program works to provide nutritious meals, fitness classes, and other wellness services to all Fountain House members.
