Jeremy Goldstein says that mental health is an issue that is affecting people around the world and he gladly supports Fountain House because of the good work they do.
The first wine dinner was held on May 22nd at the upscale NoMad Hotel. The wine they drank was the best that Chateau Latour offers. It turned into one of New York City’s top fundraisers of 2017.
As this event was so popular they decided to do a repeat which was held on May 31st. All of the money that was raised went directly to Fountain House and the people it helps.
Fountain House was established over 70 years ago. The people who have mental illnesses work with this nonprofit’s staff in order to operate all of the programs and advocate for themselves.
They also maintain the buildings owned by Fountain House, prepare all of the food, and provide administrative support services. They also work on community-based projects where they find new friends and develop their skill base, giving them a sense of purpose.
Jeremy Goldstein first joined this nonprofit’s board of directors eight years ago. He has been a lawyer for nearly 20 years and is a partner at his own law firm that he established four years ago. He attended the New York University School of Law and graduated in 1999.
His professional role is to provide legal advice to CEOs, executive teams, and compensation committees.
Jeremy Goldstein also works with individual C-level executives and provides advice about their careers and pay packages.
He says that in order to best advice these clients he tries to really get to know them. He feels that the better he knows a client the better he can meet their needs and give the best advice he can offer.
