Gala 60th Anniversary

60th Gala Information


Thank you for making the

60th Anniversary Gala a Success!

The Arc of Massachusetts is deeply grateful to everyone who celebrated our 60th Anniversary with us on Thursday, November 19th.  We were delighted by the generous and enthusiastic support we received from The Arc community, local leaders, sponsors, and our donors. Your contributions made the Gala a huge fundraising success. Thank you!

To mark this milestone, we wanted to recognize the innumerable advocates, families, public officials, donors, human service agencies, and friends who have worked tirelessly to help individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. To do so, we honored 60 individuals and partners who represented each of these groups. We were delighted to have nearly all of them join us at the Gala. Please be sure to read up on all the honorees and to check out the wonderful sponsors listed below who contributed to this event.

It’s not too late to give in honor of The Arc of Massachusetts’ 60th Anniversary and to ensure our advocacy on behalf of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Use the donate button to make a gift online or contact Katrin Aback at or 781-891-6270 x105.

Don’t miss our 2016 Gala!
