The Arc of Story County will hold an annual fundraiser, "Viva la Arc, Casino Night and Family Game Night" on Saturday, March 1, at St. Cecilia’s Parish Hall, 2900 Hoover Ave., Ames. Admission to the three-hour event, which starts at 6:30 p.m., is $15 per person. This "night of action," with family-friendly games, is run by the Knights of Columbus, and also includes a silent auction, raffle and door prizes. Food and beverages are available at no extra cost.

All proceeds will benefit the programs and services of The Arc of Story County, which advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The Arc preserves and protects their fundamental rights through advocacy and action in support of legislation for civil rights, employment, housing and community service options. The Arc connects people with disabilities, their families, professionals and others to create hope, growth and change.
