The 2010 Hearts for ARCS Valentine's Charity Ball was a hit!

On Saturday, February 13, 2010 ARCS hosted its eighth annual Hearts for ARCS Valentine’s Charity Ball at the C.V. Rich Mansion in White Plains. As guests entered, our dedicated volunteers offered them leis to get them into our “Tropical Escape” theme, which was solidified by the graphic design stylings of Andrew Mandolene. Our hostess for the evening was none other than Carol Channing (well, as portrayed by Richard Skipper)! Everyone loved the vocal stylings and diamond-studded commentary from our gracious emcee, with the talented Christine Talbott Sutin accompanying her on piano.

In between Carol’s performances, guests flocked the dancefloor to the music of DJ Jamie Villarie from DanceTime Entertainment. Glenn Burns provided guests with complementary photos at his customized photo booth, while Fischer & Williams Photographic Studios captured the evening on film. Once the silent auction ended with a rousing countdown, attendees nibbled on desserts provided by Big Girl Baking and sandal-shaped sugar cookies from Sweet Valley Treats.

We will be posting the final results from our premiere fundraiser soon. In the meantime, check out photos from the event at Fischer & Williams’ online album!
