Why Team Up for Active Minds?
Join us for a night of friendly competition in support of Active Minds, the nation’s premier nonprofit supporting mental health for young adults. In place of our annual New York Casino Night fundraiser, this virtual event offers an opportunity to gather with friends and colleagues both local to the metro NYC area and across the country.
It’s been an especially hard year for young adult mental health struggles. Teaming up with Active Minds will provide awareness, education, and actionable peer-to-peer tools to support this at-risk population, for whom suicide remains the second leading cause of death.
As always, we don’t have to be experts to help – we just need to be there.
How Will It Work?
We’ll get competitive in teams of 6-10 players, “drafted” in advance by Team Captains and Event Sponsors. Players can purchase tickets individually and form teams with a self-designated Team Captain. Or, event sponsorships include registrations for one to two teams. See link below for more details on sponsorships.
Groups can gather in person and log in together (as local regulations permit), or teammates can log in independently from anywhere!
The professionally-led games will include activities like an internet scavenger hunt or Family Feud-style “Survey Says.” This is a night sure to entertain everyone from the most competitive game enthusiasts to the cheering section.
While we all win by supporting an important cause, individual participants and teams can “win” during game night in a variety of ways:
- Game Night Winner
- Best Team Name
- Top Fundraiser (after registering, individuals have the option of asking friends for donations toward their page)
- Top Fundraising Team (cumulative of all fundraising done by the team pre-event and during the game night)
We look forward to seeing you at Teaming Up for Active Minds!
