Event description

All are invited to participate as sponsors, underwriters, donors, attendees or volunteers in The Arc of Katy 2020-2021 Gala – a fund-raising social event Saturday, April 17, 2021, that supports programs and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. 

This year’s Gala committee is planning another memorable evening of fine dining and entertainment at the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside. Gala co-chairs are Fran Dahl, Cherie Duddridge and Krista Kiblawi.

We invite individuals, companies and organizations in our community to consider supporting those with I/DD by becoming a Gala Sponsor or Underwriter or as a donor for our Live or Silent Auctions. We also are seeking volunteers to assist with various aspects of planning and carrying out the event.   

The Gala is The Arc of Katy’s major fundraiser for the year. The funds generated from our Gala support high quality, safe, affordable programs that provide skills development, social enrichment and community service activities.

Broad support from our community allows The Arc of Katy to continue our current day program, social and recreational events, and other programs for individuals with I/DD. We need additional funding to maintain and expand our programs and resources for more youth and adults with I/DD and their families in our community.  

Sponsor, underwriting and donation forms are available online at The Arc of Katy 2020 Gala Website here

If interested in volunteering or if you have any other questions, please contact the committee chairs at Gala@TheArcofKaty.org or call The Arc of Katy at 832.754.9802. 

Update July 17, 2020: The gala was originally scheduled for April 3, 2020, but rescheduled to April 17, 2021, with care for our program particants, staff, volunteers and our community as a top priority, and in response to direction from government officials and public health experts to help prevent further community spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We appreciate that the Omni Hotels Corporation and other suppliers generously worked with us to reschedule this important event. And we look forward to a gala that is our most successful ever!
