AfterDark @ THEARC Year Four
WCS Construction, LLC, continues to be a major sponsor and fundraiser of After Dark @ THEARC held in September each year. The award winning 110,000 sf two story community building was constructed by WCS July of 2003.
After Dark @ THEARC is a gala celebration to support the Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus. The gala celebration is a fabulous evening, filled with special entertainment by neighborhood children and adults who have studied at THEARC, delectable food and drink which culminates with a headlining performance by a well known musical artist. This year attendees were treated to an intimate concert by singer, songwriter and musician, Roberta Flack.
WCS Construction was successful in raising well over $200,000.00 this past year. “We strongly believe in the mission of THEARC and the safety and hope that the 11 resident non-profit agency partners bring to the families in this neighborhood.” Jim Anglemyer, President of WCS Construction, LLC.
THEARC’s community is home to nearly 50% of the children in DC, half who live at or below the poverty line. The multiple subsidized programs and services offered by its partners such as classes in dance, stage, music, art, a Boys & Girls Club with a gym, after school programs, health care and movies all summer long – are available to any child who wants to take part, including the 7,000 children who live within a mile of the campus.
