The Arc Celebrates Catalyst Award Winners

On March 16th, we celebrated our employees, community partners, and the individuals we support at our 2023 Catalyst Awards Cocktail Reception for their commitment and dedication to The Arc, Ocean County Chapter!

We honored our twelve award winners with thoughtful, heartfelt tributes while raising over $23,000 with our super raffle and silent auction to support The Arc's programs and services for people with disabilities. 

A very special thank you to the event committee and sponsors, including presenting sponsor Gallagher.
