Jeremy Goldstein, a patriot and champion for mental health and illnesses, a member of the board at Fountain house, and a partner at Jeremy Goldstein and Associates, LLC., hosted an exclusive wine dinner to raise more funds for the heroic cause of Fountain House.
The dinner was menu was nothing short of fancy – they had the finest wine and a scrumptious meal. They had two dinners in total – one in NoMAd Hotel that had a beautiful view of the skyline and had a hand picked selection of Chateau Latour Wine Vintages – this dinner reeled in about thirty thousand dollars.
While the second dinner was held in New York City, in response to the popularity that the first dinner garnered. The second dinner reeled in a little less than twenty five thousand dollars.
In total, they raised about fifty six thousand dollars for fountain house and this supported that professional self-help program that is lead by people who were recovering from their illness with the help from the staff.
