Band Together to Celebrate Abilities
Band Together to Celebrate Abilities celebrates National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month in October. Volunteer supporters of The Arc of Palm Beach County and adult clients of the organization join forces for a packaging event for The Arc’s programs. Wristbands that are packaged at this event are then distributed throughout Palm Beach County during the month of October to raise awareness and promote the employability of our adult Career Transition Program Participants.
The WILD Pants Party
Our annual WILD Pants Party is the WILDEST party of the year. In the past, we had as many as five hundred guests cheer on more than 50 men who took to the runway to help raise more than $100,000 for The Arc of Palm Beach County. The WILD Pants Party is a fashion show filled with elite male business leaders, philanthropists, local celebrities and more in our community. Palm Beaches finest gentlemen strut their stuff on the runway in the latest in men’s fashion from The Gardens Mall to support our mission.

The Arc Invitational
The annual Arc Invitational has been played at several elite courses throughout Palm Beach County including The Old Course at Broken Sound Country Club and most recently The Dye Preserve. The day begins with a light lunch and concludes with dinner, awards, and raffle. Participants get to network, play and help raise vital funds for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Players are treated to impressive swag bags, games on the course including “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive”, poker, silent auction and exciting chance drawings.
The Cowboy Ball
The posh of Palm Beach, the grandeur of Texas and the thrill of Vegas have come together at our annual Cowboy Ball. In the past, the gilded gala was held at The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm
Beach. The Cowboy Ball guests don their fabulous cowboy black-tie attire, including jeans and jackets, boots and ball gowns, and enjoy a lavish evening of gourmet dining, entertainment and dancing. The gala has also featured a one-of-a-kind live auction and The Cowboy Cantina & Casino and special appearances from the Cowboy himself, Randy Jones.
