When the barn doors swung open for Cowboy Ball, guests poured in decked out in their finest boots and ball gowns. The diamond-themed gala celebrated The Arc of Palm Beach County’s 60th anniversary.
The Arc’s signature event took place on Saturday, March 10 at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach. Friends and supporters of the nonprofit enjoyed a lavish evening of gourmet dining, swinging music, and a cowboy casino.
The packed ballroom erupted in hoots and hollers as honorary chairs Bobby and Barbara Campbell announced a $250,000 pledge. Calling The Arc his favorite charity, Mr. Campbell said the gift would be his first donation toward expanding The Arc’s center on the Florida Atlantic University Research Park campus.
Mixed in with the merriment, the call to the heart challenged guests to help change the future for children and adults with developmental challenges. Each person that made a donation received a handmade ceramic heart from an artist in The Arc’s Artisan Program.
In July 1958, The Arc of Palm Beach County opened its doors to provide quality services, education, and advocacy for children and adults with developmental disabilities, and their families.
