Annual benefit celebrates good friends, jobs and a home

More than 450 enjoyed the 25th Annual Dinner with Bill & Friends Oct. 19 at The Arc Jacksonville Village and raised over $257,000 for the nonprofit. The annual fundraiser is named in memory of Bill Sackter, an early ambassador for The Arc Jacksonville, who spoke often of the need all have for “a good friend, a good job and a good home.”

Honorary chair for the event was TIAA Bank Chairman and CEO Blake Wilson, who shared several personal connections with The Arc Jacksonville. His nephew, Max, is in the On Campus Transition Program at the University of North Florida; TIAA Bank has employed Jason Hamilton for 17 years, and the bank has been a longtime supporter. Wilson mentioned that he and Hamilton both joined the bank at the same time in 2001. Hamilton, who gave the closing remarks, is an Arc Jacksonville board member.
