       The Arc Raises $77,650 With WILD Pants Party

        The Arc of Palm Beach County puts the “fun” in
      fundraising. On Dec. 2, supporters and clients celebrated
      the finale of the annual WILD Pants fundraiser with a
      rowdy runway show at Gehring Group in Palm Beach
      Gardens. The party celebrated individuality, innovation,
      and community spirit, and raised more than $77,650 to
      support programs for people with disabilities.
        Throughout the fall, advocates for The Arc used social
      media and personal outreach to show off their outrageous
      pants and compete for the title of top fundraiser. At the
      finale, Aaron and Julie Menitoff took home top honors
      and the championship belt. Josh Sandquist hyped up the
      crowd and earned the popular vote.
        “The support of our generous community is vital to
      achieving our goal of helping people with disabilities live,
      learn, work, and thrive. Our clients and their families rely
      on us every day, and we need the community’s support
