This event took place at the Nomad Hotel Roof deck in New York and attendees of this event would have had to pay $5,000 to become part of this event. Attendees would get a meal that would be accompanied by wines that came from E. Guigal vineyard. These wines would be La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque.
This event is meant to help Fountain House. What is the Fountain House? It is basically a charity that helps people with difficult mental illnesses live a normal life. This charity started in 1944 when many people formed a group to help people like themselves. This group was called We Are Not Alone and became Fountain House later.
The We Are Not Alone group moved to a building with a fountain in front of it in 1944 after purchasing it. The fountain in front of the building became a symbol of hope for the group and it is what moved the group to change their name to Fountain House.
Over the years, Fountain House has been trying to remove the stigma around mental illness and trying its best to get housing and jobs for people who have severe mental illnesses.
Jeremy Goldstein, a New York lawyer and the host of this recent event, got his law degree from the New York University School of Law. This attorney then became part of a New York law firm. This lawyer noticed that compensation consulting firms were having the habit of stopping their partnership with larger businesses. He thought that law firms should be able to do the same action.
Goldstein then started a firm called Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates. It is a law firm that specialized in dealing with clients that are having legal problems involving corporate governance matters and executive compensation. Some of his clients are corporations, compensation committees, management teams, and CEOs.
In the future, Jeremy Goldstein will continue to have wine dinners to benefit Fountain House as he very much believes in what they do.
