Friday, Nov. 2, 5 p.m.—RUTLAND—ARC Rutland Area will be holding its annual Janet Wetherby Pampered Chef Bingo and Basket Raffle, Friday, Nov. 2, from 5-9 p.m. at the American Legion in Rutland. Tickets are $20, and can be purchased in advance or at the door. Included in the cost of the ticket are five free basket raffle tickets.
“Donors have been very generous with us this year,” stated Heather Kent, executive director. “ARC and our members can’t thank them enough. Our programs support individuals with developmental disabilities in the Rutland area. According to the Center for Disease Control, one in six, or roughly 15 percent of American children between the ages of 3 and 17 currently live with one or more developmental disabilities. This diagnosis does not go away as they age; they will carry their developmental disabilities into adulthood.”
Donations include gift certificates from Stonehedge indoor golf, Flagship Cinemas, Vermont Butchers, Kelvan’s, Otter Creek Fun Center, Garden Time, Walmart, Donna Wilkins Photography, Blush Salon, Yogurt City, as well as donations of a print from Vermont artist Peter Huntoon, a year membership from Wonderfeet Kids’ Museum, and a dragonfly lawn art piece from Shrewsbury Copper Works.
“The dragonfly from Shrewsbury Copper Works is going to be our door prize, and is especially meaningful, as Janet Wetherby loved dragonflies,” said Kent.
The American Legion is located at 33 Washington St., Rutland. For more information, visit arcrutlandarea.org.
