The Arc of Palm Beach County Charts the Course to Acceptance

West Palm Beach, Fla. (April 29, 2021) – Supporters of The Arc of Palm Beach County got an extraordinary view of the Palm Beach International Boat Show. On Sunday, March 28, the nonprofit hosted brunch on the 9,000-square-foot Mansion Yacht. 

As guests took in views of the Intracoastal Waterway from the three-story vessel, they enjoyed an elegant brunch, champagne, and live music. Kimberly McCarten, The Arc’s president and CEO, shared the nonprofit’s vision that all people, regardless of their abilities, should experience acceptance and inclusion. 

“At The Arc, we are always open to opportunities to connect with our donors, show our appreciation for their incredible support, and encourage them to continue the hard but rewarding work of achieving acceptance for all,” said McCarten.
