QUIZINE for a Cause! A cross between quiz and cuisine.

After two years of holding the event as an outdoor drive-in movie format, it felt wonderful to return to a more traditional Quizine for a Cause event this year!  The calendar may have said it was November, but the temperature made it feel like September, providing the perfect environment for us to gather together under the tent at the beautiful Wadsworth Mansion.

After a delicious dinner provided by our generous hosts, we enjoyed homemade desserts and learned about how One Call Can Change a Life.  For far too many of us, finding quality mental health care and addiction services for our ourselves or a loved one can be overwhelming. Gilead’s Service Navigators at the Mental Health Resource Center were on hand to show how they are here to help.  Through personal conversations, a simulated “phone call” and take-home magnets with the phone number, guests learned how we can connect individuals with the care they need.

Thank you for spending your Sunday evening with us and coming together to support Gilead and its mission. Together, we raised $139,000.  We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you.

Together we can strengthen our community!


Quizine for a Cause is an exciting annual event that raises critical funds for client services supporting individuals on the road to recovery. Guests begin the evening with dinner at a local home or restaurant with their host and then we all gather together at Wadsworth Mansion for client stories, homemade desserts, wine and beer tasting, tea cup raffle, live auction, and trivia quizzes. The evening will feature our Mental Health Resource Center. They will show us how together we can strengthen our community and how one call can change a life!
