10th Anniversary Arc Gala a Success!

Thank you for making the 10th Anniversary Arc Gala a Success! We are grateful to all those who donated and gave of their time and talent to organize the record-breaking event. A special thank you to Gala Tri-Chairs Jeff, Susan, and Kari Thayer.


Thanks to the incredible generosity of so many, we are thrilled to announce we have raised more than $515,000! With this investment, The Arc Greater Twin Cities will be able to:


  •  Convene a Self-Advocacy Forum in 2017, connecting hundreds of individuals with disabilities with each other, and providing self-advocacy and community leadership training.
  •  Expand online resources to unite self-advocates and self-advocacy groups, providing information and assistance on issues that impact their lives.
  • Celebrate the contributions of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and invite the entire community to attend a Sprout Film Festival, a traveling showcase of films related to the field of disabilities and videos featuring people with disabilities in major roles.


Make a gift to support the Self-Advocacy Forum, Online Resources, and Sprout Film Festival. Click here to donate
