This is the Arc NCR’s largest fundraiser of the year, brining the community together for a night of fun with a themed party. All profits go to The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region, including a Fund the Need segment of the night which identifies a specific need in the organization, which only Fund the Need contributions will go toward.
Open to those receiving services, their families, agency employees, and the general community, The Arc NCR’s Annual Meeting highlights the year in review with award presentations, inductions of new board members and recognition of the agency’s Mission Moments throughout the year.
This charity soccer game at UMBC, in memory of a young boy named Chase who had Down Syndrome, aims to celebrate and benefit children with Down Syndrome.
The Arc NCR has a memory Garden, open to people we support, family, friends, etc., and features a path paved with bricks which are engraved with the names of loved ones. Our annual Memory Garden Reception is a time for people to come together in honor of their loved ones, to share treasured memories, and to be present with others who are experiencing the same.
In memory of the legacy that Ruth Miller leaves behind as one of the founding family members of our chapter of The Arc, this reception is a time to celebrate and appreciate the contributions of others who are planning future donations to The Arc NCR through our Ruth Miller Legacy Society.
This festival brings our community together to celebrate artwork from people of all abilities and to watch films that provide important and thought provoking perspectives from the Intellectual and Developmental Disability community.
