New York Casino Night 2020

An Active Minds fundraiser to benefit mental health awareness programs for young adults nationwide

Due to current restrictions and the uncertainty of what the summer holds, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Casino Night.


While this reverses months of planning for the event, scheduled previously for June 11, 2020 at the Prince George Ballroom, and while we are disappointed by this outcome, your health, safety, and comfort remain our most important consideration.


So many are facing new challenges as we continue in extreme levels of isolation and physical disconnect, as well as facing the challenges that come with our return from quarantine. Despite this cancellation, you can still share your support to promote mental health education and awareness for young adults. With your help, Active Minds will provide high-quality programs in newly adapted formats for the changing times, in order to serve our communities wherever they may be. Thank you for your part in letting everyone know that, piece by piece and brick by brick, we can rebuild our communities – together.
