Dinner with Bill & Friends is in memory of an early ambassador for people with intellectual and developmental differences, Bill Sackter. Bill spent much of his life in an institution and, when eventually moved into the community, he spoke often of the need we all have for “a good friend, a good job and a good home.”

The focus is to celebrate and inspire change – the core of The Arc Jacksonville since founded more than 56 years ago. We pledge to continue to innovate programming and services so that individuals may live fully within our wonderful community for decades to come.

In supporting Dinner with Bill & Friends, you celebrate the achievements of all individuals and help sustain much-needed programs in our community.

Thank you to our Sponsors and Partners
