Throughout the year, The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region hosts a number of events to celebrate its mission and to connect with the community to continue achieving in its mission. Annual events are listed below, with a link to the event webpage and a brief description.
This is the Arc NCR’s largest fundraiser of the year, bringing 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.
Each September The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region recognizes Direct Support Professional Awareness week, and takes that week to additionally recognize the outstanding contributions of all of our team members. Join us in celebrating the outstanding team members that we have at The Arc NCR.
Kicks for Chase
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 Ruth Miller Legacy Society
In memory of the legacy that Ruth Miller leaves behind as one of the founding family members of our chapter of The Arc, we have an annual Legacy Society Reception to celebrate and appreciate the contributions of others who are planning future donations to The Arc NCR through our Ruth Miller Legacy Society.
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.
