Each year following The Arc of Evansville’s Really Big Show, is our Curtain Call Reception, a unique event that includes a silent auction. The Arc of Evansville encourages the individuals served to develop their talents, especially in the Child Life Center (CLC). The CLC serves a diverse population, and over 30 percent of the children come from economically disadvantaged homes. Therefore, the Center cannot charge families what it truly costs for our nationally accredited, award-winning care. Proceeds from the Silent Auction specifically benefit the Bayleigh Pauckner Endowment, a memorial fund dedicated to providing financial support for needs in our Child Life Center.
Also, the Curtain Call Reception provides an opportunity to mingle with sponsors, cast, and crew. Music, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, wine, beer, and soft drinks are provided. The silent auction and reception are regularly attended by over 600 guests each year.
