Fundraising for Mental Health: 2019 Denim & Diamonds

April 22, 2019
Alacrity Collections Corporation started supporting the Anne Arundel Medical Center Foundation years ago and we are doing it again in 2019!  ACC is delighted to be one of this year’s Diamond Sponsors of Denim & Diamonds for the 4th time in a row. This signature event will raise funds for expanding mental health services at Anne Arundel Medical Center. The Anne Arundel Medical Center Foundation’s goal is to enable AAMC “to offer the right treatment at the right time, and require inpatient admissions only when necessary for the patient.”

The 2019 theme is “Lighting the Way to Healthy Minds.”

The need for mental health services in Anne Arundel County continues to grow. The inpatient psychiatric beds that are currently available are almost always full. Access to the proper care is limited by capacity. The Denim & Diamonds event is the primary event for raising funds to increase this capacity and provide more of the needed services in the future.

The event manages to combine “glitz with casual” and “serious fundraising with a lot of fun”.

It is probably “the least stuffy” large scale fundraising event in the area. From the wardrobe flexibility –jeans to cocktail dresses – to the food offering – upscale catered delights to casual food truck treats – there is something for everyone’s taste. Oh, and then of course there is dancing! The most unusual from a fundraising event perspective may be the line-up of gourmet food trucks. Add to that a silent auction and a live auction and you are in for serious fun.

The funds raised will contribute to …

… creating a new mental health facility that will provide both residential and outpatient programs right in Annapolis. The plans to expand mental healthcare also include “referral coordination to community-based treatment and support services” as per the Denim & Diamonds website. The goal for the new mental health facility  is “to offer the right treatment at the right time, and require inpatient admissions only when necessary for the patient.”

What to wear at the 2019 Denim & Diamonds event?

As the event title indicates, the dress code is indeed very flexible. You can wear what you are most comfortable in, from denim to diamonds, or – best of all – a combination. Last year, “jeans” with fancy tops seemed to be the popular combination. The Denim & Diamonds Event website features a photo from last year’s event and an online search will result in others.
