Passion As Pathway… Gala Recap

On Wednesday, November 16 The Arc of Massachusetts honored Pulitzer-prize winner and best-selling author Ron Suskind at our 2016 Gala. Hundreds of The Arc’s supporters and friends joined us to celebrate Ron and his family’s contributions to helping us better understand and connect with people with autism. A highlight of the event was Ron and Cornelia Suskind sharing their personal story – and Owen performing voices from The Lion King.

 

The proceeds of the Gala support the work of The Arc of Massachusetts and our advocacy efforts on behalf of individuals with disabilities. President Tracy Atkinson and the Board of Directors provided tremendous leadership for the Gala and as a result we have very strong support from the corporate community again at this year’s gala. We are very grateful to State Street Corporation for their support as the Presenting Sponsor and PwC, which was a Platinum Sponsor.Organizations in our field showed their appreciation for The Arc’s work; 32 agencies, including 14 of our chapters, were represented, many of them participated as sponsors. In addition, many families attended the event.

Thank you to everyone who was part of this annual event!
