Patty’s Team to Honor the Memory of Toby

Patty’s Team to Honor the Memory of Toby

Dear Friends,

For many years, Toby and I did the Walk to support our local NAMI Affiliate. Because of COVID restrictions, and knowing that our community needs direct support, this year NAMI Westside LA pivoted from the Walk and created a website to “Share Your Self Care." It is a friendly challenge to raise funds to support NAMI West Los Angeles in providing resources to raise awareness, to fight the stigma around mental illness, and to provide support groups and classes at no cost. The Patty’s Team to Honor the Memory of Toby photo is of Toby when he won first prize for Best Doggie Attire. Last year we raised over $6,000.00 in his memory.

Each of us knows someone who has a family member with mental illness. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the number of people suffering from mental health disorders has more than doubled. Your donation will directly help those people and their loved ones. NAMI provides many free services to our community, so please help me support NAMI West Los Angeles

Please click on the link below and hit DONATE to support me on Patty’s Team to Honor the Memory of Toby.

NAMI WLA and I greatly appreciate your donations. Please feel free to forward this to any friends who may be interested.

When the going gets tough, the tough go SKIING!

If I've given you this link and asked you to chip in, you probably know my story and the struggles I've had raising a son with Schizophrenia.  You can make a donation here, BUT I would LOVE it if you add a video of your own or even just a selfie of how you Cope with all the stress that's been going on...

Scroll down or over to the BIG BLUE JOIN THE CHALLENGE BUTTON and add your video (or pic).  I've volunteered to 'captain' this team for my favorite people and this non-profit organization that at one time saved my life.  If that sounds hyperbolic, it's not.  This fundraiser is to raise funds for NAMI, specifically NAMI Westside Los Angeles. 

NAMI Westside Los Angeles (NAMI WLA) is the local non-profit affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental health conditions.

Team Bentzen strikes again!  I hope you all enjoy this great new virtual way of raising funds.  Typically NAMI has local Walk-A-Thons to raise money, but with the pandemic, it is all but impossible to have a physical fundraiser.  We're hoping this works as well, or possibly even better by creating a competition among our members to see who can do the best at outraising the 'competition'...
