When asked why this year’s benefit is bigger and better Charles A. Archer, Chief Executive Officer stated, “I think what has happened is that the THRIVE Network built a presence not only around community support, but also around advocacy. We realized our mission to enhance lives is bigger than just THRIVE. That is why we have grown every year. What we do is bigger, and what we attract is even larger.”
