Every day, The Arc of Palm Beach County is changing the lives of hundreds of children and adults with developmental disabilities. Children are taking their first steps and speaking their first words in the classrooms at Potentials Charter School. Adults are filling out job applications and becoming employed for the first time thanks to programs The Arc provides. All of this couldn’t be possible without the support of an incredible community of volunteers, businesses, and The Arc’s employees who work tirelessly to provide the proper tools to help people with developmental disabilities achieve their most independent lives.
The Arc of Palm Beach County will honor these amazing individuals and organizations at its 9th Annual Arc Angels Luncheon. The event will take place on Thursday, March 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Manatee Lagoon in West Palm Beach.
The honorees are Kurt Gehring of Gehring Group for Volunteer of the Year, The Breakers Palm Beach for Corporate Volunteer of the Year, Robert B. Campbell of BBC International for the Catalyst Award, Pratt & Whitney for the Joyce W. Laird Community Award, Wyatt Koch for Positive Impact, The GEO Group Foundation for Corporate Philanthropist, Tricia Proefrock for Outstanding Advocate of the Year, and Lottie and Bernard Drazin Family Trust for Legacy Honoree. The event will also recognize the Mary Alice Fortin Foundation and Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation as Foundations That Inspire, while giving special thanks to The Gardens Mall, which has been a long-standing supporter.
Current sponsors for the event include SandyJames Fine Food & Productions, Pratt & Whitney, The GEO Group Foundation, AIG Private Client Group, Celedinas Insurance Group, and the Marsh & McLennan Agency.
Please join us as we honor those who have helped so much over the past year. Tickets for the luncheon can be purchased individually for $100, or a table of eight for $800. All proceeds benefit The Arc of Palm Beach County.
