LAS VEGAS – Demonstrating his commitment to serving the Southern Nevada community, THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace CEO Mitch Britten recently delivered a $10,000 check and $2,500 worth of Christmas gifts to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Britten made the donation as way to demonstrate how cannabis companies can be good corporate citizens, dedicated to doing their part to make a lasting positive impact on the community.
“The cannabis industry has the potential to bring not only more revenue to the state’s coffers, but also to positively affect community organizations who share our passion for improving individuals’ quality of life,” explained Britten.
Added Jeff Gordon, president and chief executive officer, Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, “We are thrilled to work with THRIVE and welcome new partnerships that offer the chance to build long-term benefits for the families we serve.”
Britten relocated his family to Las Vegas two years ago from Colorado, where he was a leader in developing that state’s medical marijuana industry. There, he served as director of operations for the nation’s largest producer, retailer and employer in both the medical and recreational marijuana industry in Colorado. For his Nevada enterprises, Britten partnered with long-time Nevadans Ed Findlay, Julie Murray, chief executive officer/principal, Moonridge Group; and Phillip Peckman, CEO, Peckman Capital, all of whom have years of outstanding business and community service throughout the valley.
