The 7th Annual Benefit was held on October 20, 2012 at The Society for Arts. The evening of lavish dining, dancing and live performance, held to promote awareness and compassionate understanding of depression and bipolar disorder as real diseases, was attended by 150 guests and raised $73,000. Rebecca’s Dream was established in 2005 in celebration of the life of Rebecca Lynn Cutler, a journalist who succumbed to depression and bipolar disorder at age 30. Rebecca’s family and friends continue her personal mission to help others receive proper treatment and needed support. Through fundraisers, meet-and-greet events, and generous donations, the foundation has raised over $1,000,000 used to fund grants, generate resources and promote awareness while reducing the stigma of mental health issues.
