Arc Angel Breakfast a Success

Over 300 guests attended the 10th Annual Arc Angel Breakfast on October 14th, celebrating our 60th anniversary year in style at the Westin St. Francis Hotel on Union Square.
Keynote speaker Peter Magowan set the tone for the inspiring "We Can Do It!" theme, highlighting the benefits of hiring Arc clients at the two organizations he helmed, Safeway and the San Francisco Giants.
The event raised over $170,000 and garnered 17 new Arc Angels who made multi-year financial pledges to help sustain our employment, health care and independent living services. SEE COMPLETE LIST.
The program also debuted a powerful video featuring clients' personal stories of struggle and achievement. WATCH "WE CAN DO IT!" VIDEO. "I'm so proud of our clients and grateful to our supporters who play a vital role in the success of our mission," said CEO Dr. Glenn Motola. "Together, we can make a difference."
