Black & Red ReImagined Raises
Over $2M
in support of

the Institute of Living


Thank You!

Hartford Hospital is grateful to all our friends and colleagues for making the return of the Black & Red a tremendous success. With Gavin DeGraw entertaining a sold-out crowd, Black & Red ReImagined raised over $2 million with net proceeds to benefit the Institute of Living (IOL) as it celebrates 200 years of pioneering work in behavioral health care.

We are grateful to all our contributors and sponsors for recognizing the importance of the Institute of Living, and owe special thanks and recognition to our Premier Sponsors—Travelers, Constitution Surgery Alliance, and the anonymous donor honoring Dr. Hank Schwartz, psychiatrist-in-chief emeritus of the IOL.

Hartford Hospital's signature fundraising event officially kicked off a two-year celebration of the IOL in honor of its 200th anniversary. Funds raised will support the IOL's continuing innovative work in easing the burden of mental illnesses and substance use disorders on individuals, families, and communities.
