        The Arc Of Palm Beach County Charts The Course To Acceptance

        Supporters of The Arc of Palm Beach County got an
      extraordinary view of the Palm Beach International Boat
      Show. On Sunday, March 28, the nonprofit hosted brunch
      on the 9,000-square-foot Mansion Yacht.
        As guests took in views of the Intracoastal Waterway
      from the three-story vessel, they enjoyed an elegant
      brunch, champagne, and live music. Kimberly McCarten,
      The Arc’s president and CEO, shared the nonprofit’s
      vision that all people, regardless of their abilities, should
      experience acceptance and inclusion.
         “At The Arc, we are always open to opportunities to
      connect with our donors, show our appreciation for their
      incredible support, and encourage them to continue the
      hard but rewarding work of achieving acceptance for all,”
      said McCarten.
