Navigating Cancer the Body/Mind/Spirit Way


On Saturday, October 12, we will celebrate THRIVE — our 6th Annual benefit to bring needed community wellness services to individuals undergoing treatment for all types of cancer.  In addition to fabulous classes, food and community, we’re excited this year to expand the scope of THRIVE  — highlighting an Online Auction platform to reach individuals who would love to participate even if they don’t live in Charlotte or can’t attend the October 12th event.

The October 12th THRIVE festivities will include FREE 60-minute classes at 9:00 and 10:30 and a delicious brunch donated by our amazing new neighbor, JackBeagle’s.


The THRIVE auction offers almost 60 items for bid — incredible specialty items, gorgeous art, health and beauty services, one-of-a-kind experiences and valuable gift cards.
