We are thrilled to share that over $281,209 was raised at the 2022 Dinner with Bill & Friends to ensure The Arc Jacksonville can continue empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental differences through vital programs and services.

The Arc Jacksonville would like to especially thank our event chair, Travis Cummings, our presenting sponsor, VyStar Credit Union, and the many sponsors, volunteers, committee and board members, and attendees who made Dinner with Bill & Friends a success.

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.”

Thank You To Our Sponsors
