Jeremy Goldstein, founder of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC. and a local Lawyer in New York City, will host a wine dinner charity event to benefit the Fountain House; a charity that helps those with mental illnesses cope and thrive with society. The event, called “Mental Illness: You Are not ‘A Rhone.’ honors Jim Finkel and will take place on May 21st on the Nomad Hotel Roofdeck from 6-10 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $5,000 a piece and include a fantastic dinner and a spectacular array of vintage wines.
The Fountain House was founded in 1944 as a support group to help those living and coping with mental illnesses. Originally known as “We are Not Alone”, the charity purchased a large building with a fountain in front in 1948, and thus the Fountain House was born. The charity provides people with mental illnesses affordable housing, continued education and work opportunities. The foundation believes that the stigma of mental illness must be lifted and that society should help this population cope with their challenges and enable them to become productive members of society. Their focus is on each individual to develop their unique talents and/or skills, earn their degrees, obtain appropriate employment and gain the self confidence they need to be a part of every day life and their local communities. The Fountain House continues its efforts on a global scale by teaming up with the World Health Organization to bring mental illness awareness and assistance to all of those who need it around the world.
Jeremy Goldstein is a member of the board of directors of the Fountain House. The attorney is a graduate of New York University School of Law. Upon opening his own practice with Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC., he advises corporate executive team members with mergers and acquisitions of other businesses. Some of his accolades include his work with companies such as Bank of America Corporation, J.P. Morgan Chase & Company/Bank One Corporation, and Kmart Holding Corporation/Sears, Roebuck and Co.
Mr. Goldstein is a well established and credible lawyer who firmly supports their cause to assist those living with mental illnesses. He hopes that hosting this charity event will help the Fountain House to continue its incredible efforts and effectiveness in ending the stigma that surrounds mental illness that still exists even today. Jeremy Goldstein and the Fountain House aim to bring aid to those that are trying to find a way to live with their illnesses throughout the globe.
