Pour Your Heart Out is The Friends of The Arc Foundation’s signature fundraising event in Rome.
The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter provides many services in the Rome community, and this event is put on to celebrate our connection with that wonderful community.
This year we honor Lauren Marraffa as a person we support who has achieved great things in the community. We are also honoring Mark and Barb Vacca of Rome. Tremendous philanthropists in the Rome community and supporters of The Arc.
Lauren is 18 years old and has been participating in The Arc’s StageWorks program for the past five years. In the Fall, she will attend The Arc’s Options High School Program. Beyond her familiarity with The Arc, Lauren is an accomplished athlete, having excelled in Special Olympics bowling, swimming, golf, bocce, and horseback riding. She also participates in figure skating, and in February of this year, captured a Gold Medal in figure skating in Rochester.
We’ll have great food, a basket raffle, entertainment, and more! New this year, guests will be able to bid on four custom art pieces which were produced by The Arc’s Fine Arc program. Also, The Arc’s StageWorks program will be performing a number from their upcoming performance of Peter Pan. Lauren will be part of this performance, too.
The event takes place on Saturday, August 18th at the Teugega Country Club in Rome from 6 pm - 10 pm. Tickets are $75 each, or couples special of two tickets for $125. Tickets can be purchased by calling 315-272-1529 or online at thearcolc.org.
