Thank you for joining us!









Thank you to everyone who joined us for Arbor Circle's 8th Annual Spring Dinner! We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating Arbor Circle's 20th anniversary and honoring our organization's co-founders, Jerry DeRuiter and Mary Alice Williams. 
As we reflected on Arbor Circle's roots, we were also looking forward to the future. Thanks to our donors, sponsors, and volunteers, we are thrilled to announce that we surpassed our fundraising goal for the night. Because of your support, we raised the funds needed to complete the first two phases of our Enrich the Bridge project! We are so excited that we will be able to provide much needed upgrades to our facility to make The Bridge an even more welcoming space for the youth we serve. With the additional funds raised, we are also able to support our programming that serves nearly 22,000 individuals each year. We cannot thank you enough for your support!
Please feel free to view our video featuring Jerry and Mary Alice here.
