The Really Big Show Sponsorship Opportunities

Join us for the 21st Annual Production of The Really Big Show
A Benefit for The Arc of Evansville!

Saturday, February 11th, 2023 at the Old National Events Plaza

We are excited to announce that the 21st Annual Really Big Show will be live and in person on February 11, 2023 at the Old National Events Plaza! For the last two years, we have partnered with one of our media sponsors, 14News, to broadcast The Really Big Show to at-home viewers, due to the pandemic. However, this year, we are ready to fill seats and share the show live, and on stage, with the community.

For over twenty years, you, and others like you, have supported individuals with disabilities by sponsoring this showcase event. Because of you, individuals with disabilities have opportunities to experience community inclusion, gain independence, and achieve their goals and dreams. We could not provide these vital community services without the generous support of our community!

Why your support is needed! It is speculated that government dollars fully fund the needs of individuals with disabilities and our programs, but actually, less than half of The Arc’s income is provided by government sources. More than half of The Arc’s expenses are funded by donor contributions, special events, and other forms of income. Individuals with disabilities are counting on YOUR support and it is needed now more than ever.

This is how you can help. The Really Big Show continues to be a significant fundraiser for The Arc of Evansville by providing direct funding to our programs. Below, you will find our 2023 Really Big Show Sponsorship Benefits, where we offer eight different sponsorship options for our supporters. Click on each sponsorship level below to learn more about their benefits! 

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Cinda Phillips, Vice President of Development, at (812) 428-4500; x308 or cinda.phillips@arcofevansville.org.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
