Best in the West a Huge Success for The Arc

Sprint Waste Services was pleased to sponsor the 41st Annual Best in the West Saturday at the George Ranch in Richmond, Texas, benefiting The Arc of Fort Bend County and its work to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Sprint joined presenting sponsor Prosperity Bank as well as Aviles Engineering Corp., Classic Chevrolet of Sugar Land, Dannenbaum Engineering, Fred and Mabel R. Parks Foundation, the Sugar Land Rotary Club, and many others to underwrite the event.

Each year Best in the West features a barbeque dinner and dance, entertainment, and a large auction of items ranging from gift baskets to Kendra Scott jewelry to hunting, travel and entertainment packages. Last year’s event raised more than $340,000 through corporate and individual support, paving the way for the organization to provide unique programs for both youth and adults, including the Special Olympics, teen and tween services, weekly bowling groups, parent support, special education resources, and many more. 

“The Sprint Fort Bend County Landfill proudly supports The Arc of Fort Bend County because of the inspiring work and mission to support people who might not otherwise find the resources and community they need,” said Will Swinbank, partner at Sprint. “The Arc directly helps families raising children with intellectual disabilities with support programs that make a huge difference in their daily lives. We hope more people and businesses in our area will learn about The Arc and join us in supporting these unique programs.”

The Arc of Fort Bend County began in 1968 as a grassroots organization of families that sought a better life for its children. Today, the organization serves individuals and families with intellectual and developmental disabilities with advocacy, information, referrals, support and activities to help them overcome daily challenges.
