$4 Million Raised For Schizophrenia Research at Napa Music Fesitival

We've covered the Napa "Music Festival for Mental Health" in the past - and we're happy to report that the success of the fund-raiser continued this year.

The Napa valley newspaper reports that "By any standard, the 13th Staglin Family Music Festival for Mental Health was a huge success.

During the September event, 500 donors and friends raised more than $4 million for research into the causes of mental disease and potential cures. The total raised so far by the event is now more than $53 million including direct gifts and leveraged grants. It’s America’s most successful wine charity event without an auction."
