J.A., ARC of Hattiesburg present Buddy Party

(The following is a press release from the Junior Auxiliary of Hattiesburg.  Visit www.hattiesburgjuniorauxiliary.org for more details.)


Monday, September 19th from 6pm - 8pm, the ARC of Hattiesburg will host its monthly Buddy Party for participants and their families. This first event of the year is themed "Kick off with Cops" and is designed to be a fun evening with games, cheerleaders and local law enforcement to help bridge the gap between local police officers and individuals with disabilities. The ARC hopes to provide education to the local departments on dealing with disabilities in the community. 

We want local law enforcement officers to have the opportunity to interact and meet people with disabilities and their families. ARC members will get to sit in police cars, blow the sirens, etc. But the program is designed as an opportunity for the ARC to reach out as an entity to raise awareness about various disabilities and increase involvement between individuals with disabilities and local law enforcement.

The Junior Auxiliary of Hattiesburg assists with each Buddy Party by planning, supplying and serving food, desserts, and beverages. 

The Junior Auxiliary is funded each year through their Charity Ball scheduled for November 12, 2016. This year's event features dinner and dancing with live music by 2 Hipnotic, one of South Mississippi's largest silent auctions, a sports lounge, and meet and greet opportunities with Chef Katie Dixon from Master Chef.  Purchase your tickets today, at hattiesburgjuniorauxiliary.org
