Event description

Description

We are excited to invite you to our first annual masquerade & benefit ball on October 31, 2018.

October is Mental Health Awareness month and we would like to celebrate and raise awareness for mental health and wellness issues that affect our local communities with this elegant affair.

This year's theme is Cafe Society. Appropriately, it will be hosted at Madison's premiere venue for live jazz and world music, Cafe Coda.

Our inaugural event will benefit NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and MAMA Cares



Mental Health is the last frontier of medical science, but it affects 1 out of every 4 Wisconsin adults each year. Our healthcare and justice systems are overwhelmed. Affected individuals, along with their families and friends, who are left battling to cope with these illnesses and episodes are often left feeling unsupported and isolated. Crowe Collective, NAMI,and MAMA Cares all want to help change this in our communities.

2018 was very hard on the Madison creative community. We lost many talented musicians, friends and loved ones to their struggles with both mental health, addictions, and the stigmas associated with these. Madison Area Music Association's medical assistance initiative, MAMA Cares, recognizes that it is not only the artistic community that has been so heartbreakingly affected. In an effort to help in a larger scale the MAMA Cares NAMI Walk team was created to help advocate and raise support for these issues.

While we often recognize and focus on the harsh and deterimental outcomes of mental illness, there is also a lot left to celebrate! At this year's ALTER EGO Fundraiser & Masquerade Benefit we will celebrate the successes of those; who have turned their illness into inspiration, who have creatively found catharthis, and the advocates who encourage and support us.
