LANSING, Ill. (September 12, 2022) – After a multi-year hiatus, LARC is once again hosting its Annual Appreciation Dinner. The Lansing-based non-profit provides services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities — and will host its annual dinner on Friday, October 7. The dinner will highlight the work of the organization and show appreciation for everyone involved.
Proceeds from the annual dinner will benefit more than 100 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in various programs, a LARC press release said. Those programs include job training, daily like skills enrichment, senior care, 24-hour residential services, and special recreation.
The dinner will feature appetizers, dinner, cocktails, music, dancing, raffles, and a silent auction. The event will be held from 6 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. at the Serbian Social Center in Lansing. Reservations are $65 each, and event sponsorships vary in price from $125 to $1,000. Half-Carat Diamond Raffle tickets are $20 each or $50 for three.
“It’s been a little more than three years since we’ve hosted our Annual Appreciation Dinner, and we’re eager to come together in celebration once again,” said Ernie Gonzalez, LARC’s Executive Director. “We truly appreciate all the businesses, families and civic organizations in our community who continue to support us through these tough economic times.”
Reservations and sponsorships are due by Monday, September 26. In-kind donations for the auction and raffle are due by Monday, September 19.
