When Jeremy Goldstein hosted a fine dining event on Nomad Hotel’s roof deck on 22 May 2018, visitors were treated to sumptuous foods and some of the best wines in the winery industry. However, the event was more than just a group of friends and corporate executives catching up while having a great time.
It was a fundraiser for a noble cause that is dear to Jeremy Goldstein’s heart: supporting the recovery of individuals with mental illness. Organized in collaboration with Omar Khan and Jim Finkel, all the proceeds of the high-table event were to be donated to Fountain House: a nongovernmental organization dedicated to supporting mentally ill patients. Mr. Goldstein sits on the organization’s board of directors.
Hope Fountain, founded by six individuals who met by chance at a hospital in 1944, has taken a leading role in helping the country deal with a problem that is estimated to affect over 450 million people globally. For over seven decades, the company has implemented a revolutionary operational model that has been copied in 32 U.S. states and over 30 countries globally.
The primary objective of the model is to help mentally ill individuals recover from their conditions. This objective is achieved through a multi-pronged approach grounded on communal support. Members are provided with employment and education opportunities. Read more: Jeremy Goldstein | Ideamench and Jeremy Goldstein | Crunchbase
