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.


Arc in the Park is one of the Tippy Arc’s two major fundraisers. Arc in the Park 2016 was in April at McAllister Park and participants enjoyed a timed 3K or 5K walk/run, followed by live music from Saharan Drench, kids games, and a yearly raffle. We continue to improve upon our event each year and for 2017, we are adding a 10K option, along with free raffle tickets with every paid registration. Interested people can also purchase raffle tickets outside of the event and participants do NOT need to be present to win the prizes. We have a grand list of prizes, including gift cards to shopping, restaurants, activity centers and more! The grand prize each year is a $100 Meijer gift card. We have had tremendous success in years past and hope to exceed our expectations for 2017. Registration is now open for our 2017 event, which will be Saturday, May 6th. You can register on this website under the Arc in the Park tab. We need your help to make this another great event!!!
