Inspired by their experience with their son Brandon’s schizophrenia diagnosis and recovery, in 1995, Shari and Garen Staglin hosted a small concert fundraiser at their Napa Valley winery, naming it the Music Festival for Mental Health. Now named the Music Festival for Brain Health, through the years, the event has brought together a long list of renowned chefs and wineries, internationally known musicians, leading scientists and thousands of brain health supporters. Thousands of important conversations have occurred, even more memories have been made and millions of dollars have been raised through what is now recognized as one of the premier brain health charity events of the year.
