Dear Friends of The Arc of Katy,
The Arc of Katy Board of Directors cordially invites you to be a part of our 2018 Gala on Friday, April 20,
2018, at the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside, 13210 Katy Freeway, Houston, Texas. This year’s Gala
committee is planning a memorable evening of fine dining and entertainment while raising funds to help
us maintain programs that empower and enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual and
developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. As we prepare for the Gala, we recognize that our
community is strong with a spirit of care, courage and resilience. So, at our Gala in 2018 we will
recognize and celebrate some of our Katy hometown heroes, those who make this a great place to live,
and work and thrive!
Because of the generosity of community members like you, The Arc of Katy continues to open the doors
of opportunity for teens and adults with I/DD and their families. The funds generated from our Gala help
us provide high quality, safe, affordable programs that provide skills development, social and community
service events for our participants from age 16 to 60 plus. Our Gala fundraising efforts will also help in
funding our new day program home because our previous location was flooded during Hurricane
Harvey. Your support will allow us to continue to provide enriching events, socials, and activities for teens
and adults with I/DD.
Please consider becoming a Gala Sponsor, an Underwriter or donating to our Live or Silent Auction at
the Gala. Your commitment between now and no later than February 12, 2018, will guarantee
recognition during our Gala promotions and acknowledgement in our print material the evening of our
event. With your support, we also hope to expand in the future to provide additional programs for youth
and adults with I/DD in our community. As always, your participation is the key to the success of our
The Arc of Katy Gala celebrates, honors and recognizes the many accomplishments of our participants.
