                  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,
