Join me in supporting real change. Let’s support good in the world and make a difference. Help us to build a world where all those impacted by mental illness live happy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares for NAMI New York State!
My battle with mental illness has often left me feeling like Sisyphus, rolling the same boulder up the same hill every day just so it can fall back down again. All I want is to let others know that there are people who will help you roll that boulder. I believe being an ambassador will help me to help others which is my heart’s goal.
Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for NAMI New York State and NAMI Buffalo & Western New York.
The 2023 Off The Mask Art and Fashion Show Fundraiser will be hosted at the Albany Marriot Hotel on November 3rd, from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
NAMI Buffalo & Western New York receives 70% of the proceeds.
