Jeremy Goldstein, Jim Finkel, and Omar Khan have hosted a lavish wine dinner last May 22, 2018, to support the Fountain House, an organization which helps men and women recovering from mental illnesses.
The dinner consists of the finest vintages of Chateau Latour wine and some of the best food ever cooked by the best chefs in the world.
This was a worthy dinner to host for Goldstein and his partners as mental illness is a huge crisis that had affected millions of people in the entire world as of now. There’s an estimated amount of 450 million people that are currently struggling with mental illness.
How Fountain House Helped People
Fountain House is one of the organizations that got alarmed with the increasing rate of people suffering from mental illness. They were more alarmed when they observed the personal lives of mental illness patients. Most of them are having a hard time with their family relationships. Some are having a hard time coming up with the community, finding a job and even attending school.

Some even fell to heartbreaking moments such as failure of relationships, marriage, and finances. There were unlucky ones who even forgot to take care of themselves, and some even committed suicide. These tragedies are all because of mental illness like depression and anxiety issues.
Fountain House noticed these problems for seven decades already. The company was founded I 1944 by a group of six people who were actually mental illness patients as well. They decided to build the organization as a way to show patients that they are not alone in this world when struggling with these conditions. Follow Jeremy on Twitter
Their reputation led them to purchase and own a building in New York 4 years after the organization was found. The fountain on the building’s garden was the reason why the name Fountain House was made.
They actually have a very simple mission where they provide opportunities for mental illness patients to live a normal life. They provide encouragement while assisting them as a community when finding the right job, or if a patient wishes to learn in life or in academics in a more stable manner.
Jeremy Goldstein is one of the members of Fountain House and has helped using an innovative method of initiative in assisting the patients so then they can become active members of the community.
