As we look to the New Year, we are excited to continue to grow our signature events! On Saturday, April 27, 2019, The Arc of Essex County will host its 21st Annual Building Tomorrows 5K Run, Family Walk, and Fun Fest. This family friendly event will return to the beautiful lakeside venue of West Orange’s South Mountain Recreation Complex. Come join us at The Clipper Pavilion to enjoy entertainment, activities, and fun for the whole family. The 5K run kicks off at 9:00am, followed by the Family Walk and Fun Fest. Additional event details as well as online registration to follow.

The highly anticipated 6th Annual Uncorked & Uncapped: Wine, Beer, and Food Fest will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019 at The Wilshire Grand Hotel in West Orange. This delectable evening features fine wine, craft beer, hand crafted cocktails, and delicious food samplings from a wide variety of vendors. You can also expect live music and entertainment, a 50/50 raffle, and silent auction. Event details as well as online ticket purchases will be available in the summer of 2019 at www.uncorkedanduncapped.com

All proceeds from both events will directly benefit The Arc of Essex County's services that support nearly 1,500 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. Your support fuels The Arc's mission, enabling people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live full and independent lives.
