Fountain House Fall Fete

The Associates Committee of Fountain House hosted their fourth annual Fall Fete on Thursday, November 3, 2011.

This gala event serves to introduce a new audience of young professionals to Fountain House’s comprehensive mental health model and its mission to fight the stigma associated with mental illness. The event Chairs were Kate and Chris Allen, Byrdie Bell, Sarah and Jeremy Goldstein, Kathleen and Reha Kocatas, Jennifer ad Erik Oken, Lil Phillips, Madeleine Potvin, Elizabeth Pyne, Katie Tozer, Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, and Katie Zorn.

An elegant cocktail reception, graciously sponsored by the beautiful Madison Avenue boutique Soigne K, kicked off the festivities. Afterward, attendees enjoyed dinner at a private club.

The program featured Fountain House’s successful Supported Education Program and highlighted its newest component: the Associates Scholarship Award Fund. Board Member Jeremy Goldstein remarked, “Over the last four years we, the Associates, have gotten to know Fountain House and the impact it has on people’s lives. Inspired by this, the Chairs started a conversation a about how we could become more directly involved with some of the individuals Fountain House helps each day.”

Dessert and dancing completed the wonderful evening.
