In order to raise money for the New York City nonprofit organization Fountain House one of its board of directors members, Jeremy Goldstein, co-hosted two private wine dinner events in May 2018. The other two hosts of this charitable event were Jim Finkel and Omar Khan. They brought together a group of high-profile New Yorkers and were able to raise more than $56,000 to help this nonprofit whose mission is to provide services to those with mental illnesses. Fountain House uses a self-help program where both men and women receiving therapy and drugs to treat their mental illness work with a professional staff.
Jeremy Goldstein called mental illness a global health epidemic and he described how this nonprofit does a fantastic job helping its members find and keep jobs. He said that hosting wine dinners is a great way to get wealthy people together and raise money for a great cause.
The first of these wine dinners was held on May 22nd. It was located on the NoMad Hotel’s rooftop and Chateau Latour’s wines were served to the attendees. This turned out to be one of the most successful private fundraisers of the year in New York City. Jeremy Goldstein and the other co-hosts then held a follow-up wine dinner on May 31st since the first one had so much success. $33,300 was raised at the first dinner while the second one raised another $23,000. The money goes directly to Fountain House and its mission to support those affected by mental illness.
Jeremy Goldstein has his own law firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, which exclusively works on executive compensation issues.

He is also the chairman of the board of the Mergers and Acquisitions Sub-committee which is part of New York’s American Bar Association Business Section.
Prior to opening his own law firm Jeremy Goldstein had worked for a few of New York City’s most prestigious law firms. He decided to strike out on his own after seeing that others in the legal industry had done so successfully. He thought about his particular legal niche and decided that he could do the same. He now spends his workdays advising clients about where their careers are going and what pay and compensation they can command.
