Why support Roses & Races?
Your donation qualifies as a tax deduction. The Arc of San Antonio is a 501(c)(3) organization which plays an integral role in the lives of families by providing key services in San Antonio to those living with Down syndrome, Fragile X, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other intellectual or developmental disabilities.
The annual gala is vital in helping us continue our mission of enhancing the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I hope you will join us to make Roses & Races The Arc of San Antonio’s most successful fundraiser yet.
At The Arc of San Antonio, we dedicate ourselves to enhancing the quality of life for all children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.
