A Night of Champions


Friday, October 6, 2023 | 7:00 pm | Woodmont Country Club

In honor of its milestone 20th anniversary, Active Minds invites you to A Night of Champions, taking place on Friday, October 6th at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, MD. Join us for an energetic night of celebration, conversation, and games — from the arcade to the casino — as we come together for an evening filled with fun and impact.

Our night will celebrate thousands of youth and young adults championing change in the culture around mental health across the country. This year, we are also excited to honor our 2023 Champion, Board Chair Steve Lerman, for his extraordinary work over more than a decade helping Active Minds reach and impact millions of mental health advocates nationwide.

Annually, A Night of Champions provides critical philanthropic support for Active Minds’ areas of greatest need in addressing the youth mental health crisis nationwide. We are honored to have you join us in this work.
