Hi All! It is time to plan for the Tippy Arc’s biggest fundraiser of the year…Arc in the Park, Near Dark 2019. We will be meeting on Tuesday, March 19th at 5:30 at the Opportunities for Positive Growth Office on 36th Street at 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm. We are looking for volunteers to help with this event. We also welcome all new ideas.

Arc in the Park proceeds directly go to the programs of the Arc. This includes our new programs- Caregiver Support, Best Buddies Citizens and the growing Arc of the Go- along with all your other favorites- Adult Recreation, Aktion Club and Best Buddies. With recent funding cuts in 2019, Arc in the Park is even more important for our programs.

Please join us and support the programs. Contact Milissa at 765-476-3277 or for more information. You can also donate to the Tippy Arc any time using our donate now button on the top of this page.
