Golfing For Kids 2020
Par for the cause, the 20th Anniversary of the Golfing for Kids Outing and Awards Dinner to benefit The Arc Westchester’s Children’s School for Early Development (CSED), was shaping up to be an event filled with recognition and great celebration. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event committee has decided that an in-person event would not be in anyone’s best interest at this time. However, the need for funding at the school continues to be at an urgent level.
A Matter of Safety
In this pandemic year, A Matter of Taste has become a Matter of Safety! Although COVID-19 prevents us from gathering in October, our fundraising needs have never been more urgent. Costs related to COVID-19 have been, and will continue to be, enormous. Personal Protective Equipment alone costs $25,000 monthly. In addition, looming State funding cuts to reimbursement rates threaten to reduce funding for Residential Services by more than $1 million annually.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Tennis Mixer HAS BEEN CANCELED.
The Arc Westchester Foundation held their 1st Annual “Raising a Racket” Tennis Mixer in 2019, at Lifetime Athletic in Harrison, NY. The event is an opportunity to raise awareness and funds to support programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Over 40 people attended in this inaugural event.
