A portion of the ticket price will support mental health services provided by The Associated system through such partners as Jewish Community Services, CHANA and the Jewish Community Center.  In addition to sustaining services already provided by The Associated system, these funds will support new mental health and wellness outreach and education efforts and build our system’s capacity to respond to the increased need for mental health services.
