In September, Adult Recreation hosted The Tippy Arc’s second major fundraiser of the year the Blue Jean Ball. This event raises money for the Arc and for the Greater Lafayette United Way Campaign. This year we are pleased to report that we increased our annual United Way contribution by 50%. We are very proud of this effort. It is a small way to thank the Greater Lafayette United Way for their generous support of The Arc of Tippecanoe County for many years.

The Blue Jean ball featured a chili supper, a DJ…The Arc’s own Shawn Rector… great music, dancing and no ties were required. This last request was made by the guys after the Prom. 🙂 Adult Recreation Members made decorations for this event and worked as volunteers at the event. We learned that being part of a community means we give back through time and service. It was a fun night and we look forward to making the 2017 Blue Jean Ball bigger and even more fun.
