RUMSON, NJ - Plans for The Arc of Monmouth’s 44th Annual Winter Glow Ball are well underway, but there is still time to make your reservations!

This year the agency is honoring Steve “Biddy” Bidgood, regional partner of the Salt Creek Grille in Rumson and Princeton.

Mr. Bidgood is a recognized leader in the food industry. His success is largely due to his enduring passion for the world of food and beverage, and his genuine love for the community he serves. He supports many local non-profit organizations throughout the year.

The ball will be held on Friday, December 3, 2010 at the Shore Casino in Atlantic Highlands. Spectacular live and silent auctions are planned as well as both a giant cash 50/50 raffle at $100 a ticket and a $5 raffle, the prize being an Atlantic City Getaway, a two night stay at Harrah’s, show tickets and dinner valued at $1500.  The event is black tie, with an elaborate cocktail hour beginning at 6:30 PM.

The Winter Glow Ball is held each year to benefit The Arc of Monmouth. Reservations are $225 each.  Please call The Arc’s development department at 732-493-1919 to make your reservation.

The Arc of Monmouth serves more than 2,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families with education, vocational training, residential services, health care, supported employment, recreation, social services and advocacy.
