Assisting more than 5,000 persons in need every year, Arlington Thrive is an organization with an honorable mission: to "[deliver] same-day emergency funds to our neighbors in crisis, so they can be secure in their jobs, health, and homes and thrive in a caring community." This local nonprofit, which is primarily run by volunteers, helps Arlington County residents (particularly families with children) who are faced with sudden, unexpected financial hardship. Funds are donated primarily by the county, individual donors, foundations, faith groups, and area businesses.
If you'd like to make a contribution, Arlington Thrive's 40th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser is the perfect time to do so. To be held at Arlington's Army Navy Country Club on the evening of Nov. 18, this annual gala will offer heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open bar and will feature the inspiring sounds of The Metropolitan Chorus.
Individual tickets (for persons 36 and up) start at $100 and can be purchased online. Hope to see you there, The Palatine!
