“Every year, the Torchbearer Ball is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our community to the cause we hold so dear. VETS is proud to lead the charge in ending veteran suicide through our advocacy, research, and support for veterans and their spouses to access psychedelic-assisted therapies. As we host our third annual gala event, we are deeply grateful for the continued support of our sponsors and partners. This year’s theme, highlighting the nationwide impact of our mission, underscores the vital work we do, and we look forward to an inspiring evening dedicated to the veteran community,” says Amber Capone, co-founder and CEO of VETS.
