Record Number of Guests Attend Ladybug ’06 Wine Dinner 


On Sunday, March 19th, the Ladybug Fund wine dinner was held at Old Original Bookbinder's Restaurant. A record 178 guest attended this year's dinner, the first of two annual Ladybug fundraising events held each March and May. Dr. Joe & April Niamtu, ARC parents and newly-named honorary ARC spokespeople, presented the first annual Ladybug Award to the ICDS "Power Moms," a.k.a. Karen Manning Horsey, Carol Finberg, Elizabeth Hazelton, Fran McDermott, Cindy Weinstock and Vicki Beatty. The Power Moms were honored for their meritorious service to children with special needs and their families.

The second spring Ladybug fundraising event, the Ladybug Winetasting & Silent Auction, will be held at Plant Zero on May 13th. 600 guests are expected this year, so please hurry and order your tickets ($75 per person) by calling 358-1874. Together, we can ensure that Ladybug Fund scholarships are available for ANY family who needs ARC's Infant and Child Development Services.
