Join us at AYCC’s Annual Gala for an evening of fun!

November 1, 2019
Arlington Town Hall •  7-10:30pm
Honoring Board of Youth Services Member, Carlene Newell

Each year, hundreds of Arlington community members come together to support the work of AYCC, promote the value of community mental health, and celebrate the year’s accomplishments. In addition to honoring Carlene, the gala will feature raffles, a silent auction, live music by the Arlington High School Jazz band, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar.

Cheers! One complimentary drink included with each ticket this year!
