We believe in inclusion in community life for people with disabilities. The Arc fosters social connections and relationships throughout the year through parties, gatherings, and other community events.

Fundraiser & Celebration

Annual Event

We gathered virtually this year on July 27, 2021 to hear from The Arc of Virginia about statewide efforts, highlight ALLY Self-Advocate liaisons, present the Renee Brown Award, and announce the winner of our first “Split the Pot” 50/50 Raffle fundraiser!

We look forward to gathering in person again next year for food, dancing, and music! Meanwhile, enjoy the video here:

An Annual Tradition

The Christmas Cookie Party

Each December, our Board members, community members and friends get together to enjoy a tempting array of homemade cookies and other kinds of sweet treats as we sing along to holiday songs! This year we held our Cookie Party over Zoom as a decorating contest on December 13, 2020!

Renee S. Brown Award

Awarded each spring at the Annual Event, the Renee S. Brown award shines a light on remarkable individuals in our community who embody the Arc’s vision: People with disabilities leading full, rich lives as active contributing members of the communities.” The award is named for Renee Brown, a former Board member of the Arc of NRV, and beloved member of the Blacksburg community.
