 The 35th Annual Arc of Blackstone Valley Golf Outing and Live Auction was a huge success!

Over 60 golfers enjoyed a warm, sunny afternoon of golf at the Pawtucket Country Club on June 6th. After dinner, we held our Live Auction with Master of Ceremonies Alison Bologna from WJAR TV 10 and Auctioneer Bill Simas of Funny4Fund$. Thanks to our sponsors, golfers, and a generous group of bidders, The Arc raised $40,000 to support educational and recreational programs for our consumers.

Thanks especially to our major sponsors this year:
* IPNE, a Division of Starkweather and Shepley
* Pannone, Lopes, Devereaux & West
* Klein-Hornig, LLP

The Arc team: John, Joe, Jim and Jamie
Rotary Club of Pawtucket: Paul Robert, Bill Hunt, Gary and Jeff Furtado
