Stand up for Mental Health: A Comedy Fundraiser
Nothing beats doing something fun for a cause! Mental health and substance use issues are affecting someone in every family, someone you know, someone you love, and someone you care about. We’re raising money so that research leading to better treatment all around the world will be made available.
Last year, our fundraising efforts totalled over $10,000 and we successfully funded seed grants for two Global Mental Health scholars – Elson Asevedo, MD in Brazil, and Goodman Sibeko, MD in South Africa.
On May 3, we are hosting our second annual fundraiser at Gotham Comedy Club to fund the research of a third Global Mental Health Scholar. These scholars are amazing, distinguished researchers who are committed to improving lives. Our support will allow them to expand their research on a global platform and advance the way they are able to conduct studies. Ultimately, it’s all about helping people.
Tickets are $100 if you are one of the first 100 to buy and include a comedy performance, open bar, appetizers, and a raffle.
Note: You must be 21+ to attend.
