Bring Change to Mind honors the winners of the Robin Williams Legacy of Laughter Award
On October 19, 2022, Bring Change to Mind (BC2M), a nonprofit organization co-founded by award-winning actress Glenn Close to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness, presented its 10th Annual Revels & Revelations fundraiser at the historic Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco. The evening was filled with both laughter and tears as celebrities and music legends spoke of their own experiences dealing with mental illness issues suffered by their friends and family.
Revels & Revelations 10 featured a star-studded evening of musical performances by icon Alanis Morissette and musician Andy Grammer, a performance by comedian Jay Pharoah, and the bestowing of the Robin Williams Legacy of Laughter Award to actress Melissa McCarthy by Zak Williams, a BC2M board member. Actor Erich Bergen hosted the event. BC2M’s visionary, Glenn Close, made a special appearance. Along with adults sharing their stories, students from the BC2M High School program spoke of how they have been helped and supported through the youth program. The spectacular evening raised $1 million for the cause.
