With the help of ARCHway’s St. Louis community, we raised a record number of over $17,000 at our annual trivia night!
According to the Missouri Institute of Mental Health, “Drug overdose deaths increased 16.5% in 2020. In total, 1,842 people lost their lives, which averaged to 5 deaths every day in Missouri last year.” We do this work for these 1,842 individuals we have lost, their family and friends, and those who are still struggling today. Our annual St. Louis Trivia Night gave special recognition to the HOPE Fund Sponsors in memory of those we’ve lost to substance use disorder, including Matthew Willey, Marci Smith, Johnny Andrew Barton, Anonymous Deeds, Justin Greenber, Blake Tivoli, Joey Jones, Zack Smalley, and Nathan Jackson.
We are so grateful for the support and turnout for our first “back in-person” event in St. Louis at the LiUNA Event Center. We enjoyed a friendly competition traveling through the decades with trivia. The proceeds from this event are going directly to the ARCHway HOPE Fund, which will enable ARCHway to give grants that increase access to treatment and recovery resources for individuals struggling with substance use disorders.
Of course this event would not be possible without our sponsors and vendors. Thank you to all who made this sold-out event happen!
