Dinner with Bill & Friends 2018

Honorary Chair: Blake Wilson, Chairman & CEO, TIAA Bank

Friday, October 19, 2018 at The Arc Jacksonville Village

Dinner with Bill & Friends raised more than $260,000 with more than 450 guests in attendance! Thank you for celebrating the achievements of all individuals and helping sustain much needed programs in our community.

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.”

Your support ensures 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!

Thank you!
