Do you love events and want to help raise money for a good cause? If so, we need you! Families for Depression Awareness, a Waltham-based nonprofit, is in preparations for our October 21, 2022 annual fundraising event. The event will take place in person in Burlington, MA. There maybe some kind of virtual component (either hybrid or a separate, smaller event, but that will be decided as a team). Currently, we are looking for people to help with the following:

  • Event planning
  • Entertainment
  • Fundraising (we have traditionally done a silent auction, but we are open to ideas!)
  • Event PR, creating a marketing campaign to grow our attendee list
  • Social Media
  • Decoration within this year's theme
  • Working with a caterer to determine the best way to serve food with Covid in mind
  • Sponsorships (sending sponsorship opportunities to local companies).
Event planning meetings will be held virtually, but we would prefer people who are located in the MA area to be able to help with the event day of. If this describes you or you just want be involved, please respond by emailing Jessica Mailman at jessica@familyaware.org.

Families for Depression Awareness helps families recognize and cope with depression and bipolar disorder to get people well and prevent suicides. Funds raised from our event, An Evening of Hope and Discovery, will support our programs for teens and families.
