September 10th, 2018 was World Suicide Prevention Day. In support of this day, we broke the ice, fought the stigma, and continued the conversation about mental health and wellness with over 150 supporters. For this event, we partnered with our grantee, The Jed Foundation (JED), to support their campaign, Seize the Awkward.


The Bruce C. Abrams Influencer Dinner

City Winery, New York, NY
Tuesday, May 16, 2017


We were honored to support Project HEAL’s 9th Anniversary Gala by hosting the Bruce C. Abrams Influencer dinner as a precursor to the main event. More than 30 individuals, all with a passion for and dedication to mental health, attended the dinner and we were very proud of the results. Project HEAL was able to raise over $200,000 at this very successful event, which honored Kelsey Miller, Refinery29, Lily Collins, and Marti Noxon. We look forward to partnering with Project HEAL as the organization continues to grow its programs and share its mission.


The Ice Breaker Benefit

632 Hudson, New York, NY
Friday, April 7, 2017


The World Health Organization (WHO) dedicated World Health Day, April 7th, to raise awareness about depression. In support of this day, we gathered with over 150 guests to break the ice, fight the stigma, and start the conversation about mental health and emotional wellness. Our goal in hosting this event was to inspire working professionals to live presently and courageously, without judgement or shame, using community and conversation to redefine how the world perceives mental health. We hope this night was inspiring to all who attended and we look forward to hosting future events with this same goal in mind.
