For the past 6 years, AIM has been honored to host its annual gala in conjunction with the world-renowned Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, raising funds for youth mental health research. While we look forward to returning to Pebble Beach in 2021, AIM is excited to convene our enduring supporters and new friends for our first-ever virtual gala. The virtual gala will provide attendees with a dynamic and inspiring live program highlighting AIM’s impact and our next phase of investments in research.
