I am incredibly proud to serve as the Executive Director of The Arc of Northern Virginia, an amazing organization that provides direct services, education and advocacy to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

Over the past 5 years, I have learned so much about the complicated processes involved in providing supports and services to people with disabilities throughout their entire lifetimes, and what families have to go through in order to ensure that the needs of their loved ones are met.

This year, The Arc of Northern Virginia will be holding "A Motown Experience" Gala on Saturday, October 22 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. Our Gala, which is held every other year, is our signature fundraising event.

My goal is to raise $2,500 for The Arc of Northern Virginia’s Gala under “Rikki Epstein and Family & Friends.” Can you help me reach my goal? Any donation you can provide would be tremendously appreciated and will go towards helping our organization continue to move forward. I hope you will consider making a tax-deductible contribution.

Thank you so much for your support! It means the world to me, and most importantly, it will mean so much to the people with disabilities and the families that we support.
