Garret's Space, an Ann Arbor-based suicide prevention non-profit, will host its annual fundraiser, Go4GarrettsSpace, on Saturday, August 24th at the Morris Lawrence Building on the Washtenaw Community College Campus from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

This year’s event will bring together 250+ community members who are committed to providing hope and healing for young adults struggling with depression and anxiety. Guests will enjoy a light dinner, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, dessert, and a silent auction filled with donations from dozens of local businesses.

The fundraiser is being hosted, as it has since its inception, by Mario Sulaksana, a Los Angeles-based musician who was one of Garrett’s closest friends. Throughout the evening guests will hear video testimonials from young adults struggling with depression and anxiety, and Garrett’s Space supporters including Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, U-M President Santa Ono, sports commentator Mike Tirico, author and filmmaker Davy Rothbart, and CNN commentator and former senior advisor to President Barack Obama David Axelrod.

There will be a compelling program featuring former Garrett’s Space Wellness Programming participants, an update on our envisioned non-medical residential center from co-founders Julie and Scott Halpert, and the second annual “Spirit of Garrett” award ceremony in memory of Natalie Charach. Guests will have the opportunity to attend a meditation session at 5:30 p.m. as well as a healing sound bath at 9:00 p.m.
