$10,000 Drawing Event

May 20, 2016

The Shaw's Center


"Rally for Inclusion"
We are ALL meant to SHINE!

The event was a huge SUCCESS
 with all 400 tickets sold.  

Everyone who came to The Shaw's Center had a great time dancing to the music and fun provided by Jim Plunkett.

The proceeds will help fund new initiatives, by the Brockton Area Arc and Heartbeats for Down Syndrome, for children and adults with special needs and their families.  For Heartbeats, this means expanding the delivery and content of the care packages.  For the Brockton Area Arc, this means expanding program offerings in our Community Based Day Support, Day Habilitation, and Family Support Center programs.


We couldn't have done it with you!!

Fund Raising 

Each year the Brockton Area Arc has only two major fundraisers: "All Aboard The Arc!" and our famous and fabulous golf tournament.  The revenue earned during these events is vital to the continued success of our programs.
