Albany ARC needs financial help from the community

October 29, 2007

Albany--On November 5th, the Advocacy Resource Center in Albany will kick off its biggest fundraiser of the year.  The money raised from the event will go to continue helping those living with mental disabilities.

The event is a "Victorian" themed tea party along with a silent auction.  Over 100 items are up for grabs if you're the highest bidder.  Some of the items include gift certificates, portraits, gift baskets, a computer, and much more.

Much of the money raised will be use to help provide medicine, housing, programs for south Georgians living with disabilities.   The money will also be used to support athletes participating in the Special Olympics.

Organizers with ARC are hoping for a big turnout for next week's event.

The event will take place at the Shackelford House at 2200 Dawson Road from 4 PM to 6:30 PM.  For more information, you can contact ARC at 888-6852.

If you can't make it to the event but would still like to donate to ARC, just call them at the number above.
