Where Brain Science, Wine, and Cuisine Sizzle!
Through your attendance and generosity, $2.6 million was raised for One Mind, pushing our annual fundraising total to over $13.8 million.
The day-long festival began with the Science & Innovation Symposium, which featured presentations from One Mind's 2023 Rising Star Awards, early-career scientists leading pivotal, innovative research to develop better treatments for mental illnesses. The Symposium also featured keynote speaker Steve Paul, M.D., CSO & President of Research and Development at Karuna Therapeutics, and the entrepreneurs of the One Mind Accelerator, an intensive program that aids early-stage startups developing real-world solutions to improve the lives of people facing mental health conditions.
The highlight of the festival was a performance by award-winning country singer/songwriter Martina McBride. The mental health advocate's 90-minute set had patrons on their feet dancing and singing along with her Grammy award winning hits.
The festival also featured a world-class wine tasting and culinary experience that paired exquisite wines with culinary delights by award-winning Chef Ken Frank and caviar from Caviar Russe. The VIP Wine Dinner under the stars, featuring James Beard Semifinalist Cassidee Dabney, contributed $750,000 to our total raised, thanks to the generosity of our passionate guests.
We are so grateful to all of the sponsors, donors, and attendees who made this year's Music Festival for Brain Health such a success. Your support is helping us to make a real difference in the lives of people facing mental health challenges.
Join us next year for the 30th Annual Music Festival for Brain Health!
