Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF) will hold a “champagne and shopping” reception on Tuesday, January 27 from 6 to 8 pm at Cabochon Jewelry, 1044 Lexington Avenue in New York City. Cabochon will donate 20% of the proceeds of all sales to HDRF’s advanced neuroscience research. The event has been organized by HDRF’s new Junior Committee, a network of young professionals who wish to raise awareness and funds for HDRF’s mission to advance the understanding and treatment of depression, a major worldwide health issue.
“We’re excited to team up with Cabochon Jewelry to bring committed young professionals together in support of such an important cause,” said Nicole DiCocco, who is spearheading HDRF’s Junior Committee. “Cabochon has a huge fan base and we expect a great turn-out.”
Based in Southampton, NY, Cabochon Jewelry carries a curated collection of high-end fashion jewelry pieces from around the world. Cabochon expanded to its Lexington Avenue location in the fall of 2014.
HDRF is the leading non-profit dedicated solely to advanced depression research; its main goal is to find the root causes of depression and develop new and better treatments. To that end the Foundation has funded 104 research grants in 12 countries, 18 US cities and 48 research institutions, including Harvard and Rockefeller University. Currently it is focused on the research plan of the Depression Task Force, an outstanding collaboration of leading neuroscientists, each a pioneer in their own field — including genetics, epigenetics, molecular biology, electrophysiology, and brain imaging.
The mission of the Hope for Depression Research Foundation (HDRF) is to fund cutting-edge, neuroscience research into the origins, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of depression and other mood disorders – bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, post-traumatic stress syndrome, anxiety disorder and suicide. HDRF was founded as a 501(c)(3) public charity by Audrey Gruss in 2006 in memory of her mother Hope, who struggled with depression for decades.
