The Journey Home

reminisce_studio_0007Some 250 friends and supporters joined us at the Harley-Davidson Museum Garage on November 15 to celebrate adoption and support the programs and services that we provide here at ARW. Guests enjoyed food and fellowship, along with some games and, of course, a spectacular silent and live auction. All told, we were able to raise more than $60,000 for the work we do at ARW – a feat that we would not have been able to accomplish without our wonderful donors and supporters!

The annual adoption celebration is the result of a strong collaborative effort between the staff at ARW and a committee of volunteers who include Leah Karge, Tyra Baumler, Wendy Gebauer, Mary Frances Lilly, Marianne Miller, Jerry Mueller, Jill Snyder, Will Waller and Sandy Wysocki, with assistance from the entire ARW Board of Directors. The committee works throughout the year to reach out to the many wonderful businesses who donate items for our auctions, who underwrite the event and, of course, who attend every year.

Thank you all for helping us create an evening of fun, community and the greater ARW family. If you’d like to join us in 2013, we’ll be hosting the 18th annual event on November 14.

Please visit our Facebook page to view an album of photos from the event, with thanks to Reminisce Studio by Miranda & Adam, who took all the photos and donated their time and services.

A special thank you to our event sponsor, National Insurance Services, as well as to all of our underwriters and table sponsors:
