Announcing A CHaRM’ing Evening, 2022

By Andi Frey

Live Thrive, a nonprofit sustainability organization and founder of CHaRM, the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials, has announced its annual fundraiser A CHaRM’ing Evening.

A CHaRM’ing Evening is the annual fundraiser for Live Thrive in support of its educational initiatives and the operational costs to run CHaRM, Atlanta’s only permanent drop-off facility that aims to improve environmental health by encouraging reuse and diverting thousands of pounds of household hazardous waste and hard-to-recycle items from Metro-Atlanta landfills and water systems.   

Guests at A CHaRM’ing Evening will enjoy delicious food, cocktails, and a live performance
by Yacht Rock Revue. Requested attire is 70’s and 80’s best. The event will take place on Thursday, October 20, 2022, from 6:30-10:00pm at Venkman’s,  740 Ralph McGill Blvd. NE.   

Tickets include two drink tickets, heavy hors d’oeuvres and Yacht Rock Revue performance: $50 through August 12, $60 through September 14, $70 beginning September 15, or $80 at the door and is generously sponsored by Delta Air Lines, Chick-fil-A, and other Atlanta-based businesses.

In 2021 alone, the CHaRM reused/recycled/reengineered more than 31 tons of Styrofoam, 274 tons of chemicals, 251 tons of glass, 1727 mattresses and much more for a total of 4,371,000 pounds of materials. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the expansion of Live Thrive’s outreach, including the opening of a second zero waste facility in late 2022.  Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and nearly three months of closure, CHaRM’s intake increased during 2020 and 2021. 

(Live Thrive is a 501 (c) 3 that empowers people, organizations, universities, communities, and businesses to make positive, healthy, and sustainable changes to the environment through partnerships and community events. The organization works with Atlanta-based corporations to develop educational and recycling programs for employees and serves as a managing program partner for the #DoYouRecycle? Challenge for multi-family properties). 

(CHaRM is Atlanta’s first permanent facility for the recycling of materials too harmful to place at the curb, Live Thrive’s CHaRM, encourages reuse while diverting thousands of tons of household hazardous waste and other hard to recycle items from local homes, water supplies and landfills. CHaRM is located at 1110 Hill Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30315, and open by appointment only. http://livethrive.org/charm, 404-600-6386.)
