Celebrating Katy Hometown Heroes
The Arc of Katy Board of Directors will present The Arc of Katy 2018 Gala – Celebrating Katy Hometown Heroes on Friday, April 20 to raise funds for programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. Guests at the fund-raiser gala, which will be held at the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside, will be entertained with a reception, seated dinner, program, silent and live auctions, dancing and other fun activities. Also at the Gala, The Arc of Katy will present two of the organization’s key supporters with the Ann Davis Founder’s Award and The Arc of Katy Volunteer of the Year recognition. In addition, as a new feature of the Gala in 2018, The Arc of Katy is honoring two of our Katy Hometown Heroes who make this community a great place for our program participants and members to live, work and thrive.
Individuals will be nominated for Hometown Heroes awards by the residents of the community at large in recognition of the nominees’ community service and advocacy for individuals with special needs. The two honorees will be selected by a committee of community leaders. Registration for gala attendance, sponsors, underwriters and auction donations is available at thearcofkaty.ejoinme.org/2018Gala. Nomination forms are available on The Arc of Katy website, www.thearcofkaty.org. For additional information, please contact Amy Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org or (281) 391-6164.
