It is no surprise that the challenges we face this year are substantially greater than those of the past. But the good news is that The Arc Tampa Bay’s work will never stop. Even in the most typical year, The Arc provides care to over 300 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities 365 days a year, from children to seniors, many of whom have nowhere else to turn. From someone living in one of The Arc’s 18 Group Homes, they rely on 24-hour support from dedicated caregivers to find safety and comfort in a home of their own, developing friendships, and enjoying everything a home has to offer. In addition, The Arc delivers comprehensive programming at one of its three day-program locations including Tarpon Springs, Harborside Art Studio, and The Long Center in Clearwater. Here, our friends over the age of 22 enjoy enriching activities, life skills classes, or the option for employment on campus earning a competitive wage.

As a dedicated Omelette Party attendee and/or supporter of The Arc, you are very well aware of the needs of our clients and how important our annual Omelette Party is in meeting these needs. Sadly, like many other charitable organizations, we are faced with another year without an event to plan and we have been humbly reminded of our true purpose-to care and support those in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Today, we invite you to join our committee, who has graciously underwritten the cost of the signature boxes, and the generous hearts of The White Family Foundation, TELETIES, and the Connors Family Trust in a Black Tie Donor Matching Campaign. When you choose to sponsor The Arc this year, your donation will be matched up to $50,000 by these three amazing organizations and will be a 100% charitable deduction that goes directly towards the programs and needs of The Arc. Although the time for parties may momentarily be put on hold, the work our committee supports will never stop.

If you are a returning sponsor, we thank you and hope you will once again join us as we raise necessary funds through our Black Tie Matching Campaign. If you are new to The Omelette Party event, we invite you to join us and so many like-minded individuals in our mission to support The Arc Tampa Bay Foundation. Your support makes The Arc and its programs flourish and we are simply in awe of the over $3 million in contributions The Omelette Party community has contributed over the past 54 years.

When it is time to gather again, we look forward to seeing you, our amazing supporters, both new and old, in celebration of the works of The Arc Tampa Bay.

In much gratitude-now more than ever,

Merideth and Billy Henry                    Tracy and David Phillips
