Warwick, RI (May 12, 2022):  Thrive Behavioral Health held its annual fundraiser at The Gamm Theatre on May 4th raising just over $27,000 for its behavioral health programs and services.  The event returned after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. Staff, board members, sponsors and members of the community came together to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres followed by a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by The Gamm Theatre players. Funds were raised through sponsorships and raffle ticket sales for a number of coveted baskets filled with donations from businesses all over Rhode Island.

“The donations raised tonight will fund the programs and services that provide a safety net for the four thousand adults, children and families throughout Kent County who depend on Thrive Behavioral Health for services related to mental health, substance use, trauma and homelessness,” shared Dan Kubas-Meyer, Thrive’s President and CEO.
