Arc Event Raises More Than $40,000

UNION COUNTY — The Fifth Annual Step Up for The Arc was a resounding success with more than $40,000 raised. The monies will help the Arc of Union County continue to provide programs and services to more than 1,000 children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, which enable them and their families to enjoy a productive and enhanced life.

Presenting Sponsor, The Provident Bank was represented by Jean Quinn, vice president of corporate communications, John C. Przybylinski, assistant vice president and banking center manager of Provident’s Fanwood office and Charles S. Mancuso, business development officer.


Quinn presented savings bonds from The Provident Bank to three Union County schoolchildren: Isabella Jeczo of Springfield, Erin Roth of Westfield, and Rahman Nafiu of Elizabeth, who were Step Up for The Arc’s First Annual T-Shirt Design Contest winners. Jeczo was the top winner and her artwork was featured on the official t-shirt. They were joined by Ambassador of Goodwill 2010, Tanner Bell, a recent graduate of The Arc Kohler School and his mother, Heidi Bell, who remarked, “I am very excited for Tanner to be part of the kick off to Step Up for The Arc!”

“Family, Friends and Fun are what the Fifth Annual Step Up for The Arc was all about,” said Alexis Sosinski and Aida Colon-Liptak, family co-chairs. “We are thrilled at the response from our families, friends, corporate partners and staff, and amazed that nearly 400 walkers and runners joined us at Oak Ridge Park. Sosinski added, “I am looking forward to another fantastic Step Up in 2011.”
