Art of Wellbeing: An Evening of Jazz, Hope, and Healing

Saturday, October 21, 2017 @ 6:00 PM

Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) is proud to announce its Fifth Annual Art of Wellbeing: An Evening of Jazz, Hope, and Healing to take place on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m. at The Cabaret Theatre of Mohegan Sun.

This year’s event will feature special guests Jimmy Greene and Nelba Márquez-Greene, two inspirational and remarkable members of the Connecticut community. Jimmy and Nelba are the parents of Ana Grace whose life was taken during the tragedy in Sandy Hook on December 14, 2012.

The evening will begin with an opening reception, including gourmet hors d'oeuvres, an open bar, and desserts provided by the talented team at Mohegan Sun. Our mobile auction will be live throughout the evening where attendees can bid from their mobile devices or our volunteer-staffed kiosks on several wellness related packages. Connecticut-born, jazz musician Jimmy Greene and his quartet will play music from his recent Grammy® nominated release. Through an intimate discussion, led by New England News Collaborative and WNPR’s John Dankosky, Jimmy and Nelba will share their experience of the power of healing through music and personal expression and how the Márquez-Greene family promotes love, connection, and community to honor their daughter, rebuild their lives, and impact the lives of those around them. Nelba will also share the good works of The Ana Grace Project, a nonprofit where the family’s slogan of “Love Wins” has become a powerful force for changing thousands of lives in our schools and communities. MHC has committed to donating a portion of all net proceeds to The Ana Grace Project through this event.
