                  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
