Get excited!

Join the celebration along with our Title Sponsor Bravura Information Technology Systems, Inc. The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region’s 17th Annual After d’Arc Gala: Rio Carnival is on October 16, 2021 and will be held at Water’s Edge Events Center. Click through the buttons below to learn about our event and the mission it supports.

This year’s theme is “Carnival in Rio,” celebrating the multi-cultural society and festivities of Brazil. The theme is filled with vibrant colors, uniting all the colors of the rainbow. Music and dance is important to this theme as well, specifically the samba. In short, this theme is about being together and having fun. Learn more about the theme at www.carnivaland.net/rio-de-janeiro-carnival/

Join the celebration! This is a fun theme which is made for everyone, because together we are better.

The After d’Arc Gala is our largest fundraiser of the year, attracting top donors throughout Harford and Cecil County who believe in our mission.  While the 2020 After d’Arc Gala was held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 event will be held in person!

Year after year our community has come together at our After d’Arc Gala to have a good time and do some good as well by supporting the mission of The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region: empowering people with differing abilities to live, work and thrive in the community. This is a great time to enjoy together, with a festive theme to be immersed in, an exciting silent auction and jewelry raffle to participate in, and authentic cuisine from the theme to spark your taste buds as well. All of this while making a difference in supporting The Arc NCR and helping to meet the unique needs that each year has presented. This past year has certainly presented a number of unique needs for The Arc NCR and so this is a great year to join the celebration.


Thank you to all who are contributing to and participating in this year’s After d’Arc Gala, and a special thank you to our top sponsors listed below.
