The Arc of Atlantic County’s annual MonArc Celebration returns 6 p.m. Thursday, May 16, to the Grand Ballroom at Golden Nugget Atlantic City. The event celebrates the mission of the Arc, which supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families within our communities. Proceeds from this year’s MonArc Celebration will go toward supporting a variety of programs and services that The Arc offers to these individuals, including case management, recreation, social and educational activities and family support.

Guests at this year’s event will be treated to gourmet menu items put together by the executive culinary team at Golden Nugget. There will also be an open bar featuring tastings of select wines, craft beers and spirits as well as a photo booth and live music provided by The Exceptions.

Those looking to head home with a little extra something will be able to bid on items at the silent auction which will include a variety of sports memorabilia.

“Golden Nugget is excited to bring The MonArc Celebration back for the third year,” said Kevin Scull, assistant general manager and vice president of resort operations for Golden Nugget and honorary chairperson of the MonArc Celebration committee, in a recent press release. “We’re planning a spectacular event that will benefit a great cause!”

Tickets to the MonArc Celebration are $150 per person or $1,250 for a table of 10. Tickets can be purchased at TheArcAtlantic.org.
