In support of Raleigh’s Over the Edge fundraiser for the Special Olympics, our Thrifty Office Furniture team invites you to join us in “pushing the boss over the edge!” Our boss, Joel Gillis, has agreed to register for participation in this adventure, rappelling down the side of Well Fargo’s 30-story […]
