Music and Raffle for BMW Headline Evening to Support Recycling
Live Thrive Atlanta will hold its annual fundraiser to support the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials from 6:30 to 10 p.m. October 4. CHaRM is an Atlanta facility that has kept more than 75,000 tons of paints, chemicals, electronics, glass and tires from area water systems and landfills. It is Atlanta’s only permanent drop-off facility for materials that are too harmful or bulky for the curb.
Titled “A CHaRM’ing Evening,” the event will feature a performance by Yacht Rock Revue and the opportunity to win a 2018 BMW i3 donated by Global Imports BMW. Food, wine and Sierra Nevada beer will be on hand. Funds raised help pay for the organization’s waste-processing fees and environmental-education programs, and the costs of expansion and operating equipment.
Up to 1,000 raffle tickets will be sold for the BMW i3. Raffle tickets cost $100 each; to purchase tickets visit www.CharmBMW.org. Attendance at A CHaRM’ing Evening is not required to win.
