On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan and the Braganini Family officially announced the launch of the fifth be nice. Memorial Fund in West Michigan.
The David Braganini be nice. Memorial Fund will cover half of the cost for be nice. programming in schools located within Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties. This gives the MHF the opportunity to impact more than 50,000 students in that area.
David Braganini was the president of St. Julians Wines in Paw Paw, Michigan. He suffered from depression and died by suicide in the summer of 2016. His family hopes this fund will help save lives and create awareness surrounding mental health.
