                  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.
