Catalyst Awards Now a Virtual Event

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Arc of the Quad Cities is turning the Catalyst Awards event into an online, virtual event. We will be sharing with you all the details as this comes together. Although this may seem very creative solution to a modern problem, this isn’t the first time that The Arc has had a virtual event. In fact, The Arc had a Phantom Ball in the 1960’s where no refreshments were served, no music was heard, and no drinks were poured. The invitation asked attendees to an evening “in your own home,” or on Cloud 9. The cost to attend – whatever it is worth for you not to go. No dress recommendations were made except for “no tie.”


Following in line with that tradition we will be recognizing our honorable slate of honorees in the local newspaper, on-line, and through social media. We will be looking for every available outlet to give them the recognition they deserve and we will be putting all of our auctions online only. We will spreading the word about this change in format in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for those announcements.


Thank you for your support of this amazing event and people with disabilities who deserve your flexibility.


In the words printed on the Phantom Ball invitation, “We are a nation of understanding people who have never failed to help one another.”
