Our celebration is called Dinner with Bill & Friends in memory of an early ambassador for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Bill Sackter. Bill spent the better part of his life in an institution and, when eventually moved into the community, he spoke often of the need we all have for “a good friend, a good job and a good home.” 

The focus is to celebrate and inspire change – something The Arc Jacksonville has focused on since our founders came together more than 50 years ago. We pledge to continue to innovate programming and services so that individuals may live fully within our wonderful community for decades to come.

The Arc Jacksonville is honored to have Florida Senator Aaron Bean, 4th District, as chair for this year’s dinner. Senator Bean has been a longtime supporter of The Arc Jacksonville and serves as an advocate both locally and at the state level.

By participating in Dinner with Bill & Friends, you will celebrate the achievements of all individuals and help sustain much needed programs in our community. Last year’s dinner had more than 400 in attendance, raising $215,000. Your sponsorship will ensure that The Arc Jacksonville continues to elevate and empower individuals to achieve the “good life” we all want – a good home, a good job and good friends!
