LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — An organization aiming to tackle pressing humanitarian challenges is getting the community involved in their effort to address mental health. 

The Lafayette Daybreak Rotary Club is hosting a fundraiser to bring awareness to mental health. The 11th annual A Toast to Mental Health will happen Thursday, May 3 and is open to the public. It's a chance for the rotary club to help raise money for local mental health services.

There will be complimentary beer or wine, hors-d'oeuvres, live music and a silent auction. Club member Ken Ritchey said the club has raised more than $300,000 from this event over the past decade.

"It has become, I should say, far more than we had ever envisioned," said Ritchey. "When we started out that first year we thought we did a pretty good job, but things have really snowballed from there."

There are three organizations that will be receiving donations from this fundraiser. Mental Health America, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and Willow Stone Family Services will all benefit from the night. Ritchey said these organizations provide mental health services, advocacy, and education.

"We're just pleased as the Daybreak Rotary Club to be able to be involved with these three mental health organizations." He said the organizations provide a "Wonderful service to our community."

A Toast to Mental Health is being held at the Trails Banquet Facility in West Lafayette. Doors open to the public at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are $35 at the door.
