About Dinner with Bill & Friends

In supporting 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 500 in attendance, raising $250,000+. 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!

Dinner with Bill & Friends is in memory of an early ambassador for people with intellectual and developmental differences, 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.
