Each year, the Arc of Carroll County hosts the Capitol Steps here in Westminster. This event is one of their biggest fundraisers to support our community and the clients they serve. This year the show will be on Saturday, November 11th at Winters Mill High School at 7:30PM.
What is the Arc of Carroll County?
The Arc of Carroll County is a non-profit organization serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. They offer support in many different capacities, some of which include: providing transportation, support services, housing, employment, and day programs. These services which The Arc provides are invaluable to our community.
A Partnership for Good
The Arc of Carroll County has partnered with the Capitol Steps for this annual fundraiser, and this will be their 15th year. Each year the event grows larger, boasting over 600 tickets sold and more than $20,000 raised last year alone.
The money raised during this annual fundraiser is applied to programs which are either underfunded or completely unfunded at the Arc of Carroll County. Your support is vital in helping them to “provide those services to the 700 children and adults in Carroll County” whom they serve. So, take the time and enjoy a great show while supporting an even greater cause.
Who are the Capitol Steps?
The Capitol Steps is a political satire group. They began over 30 years ago from a group of Senate staffers. They came together to provide entertainment for a Christmas party in 1981, and, of course, they were a big hit! Their unique brand of political humor and satire created a one-of-a-kind comedic group that is now one of the most popular comedy groups in the metropolitan area.
This year they will be performing selections from their new album, “Orange is the New Barack.” Here’s a teaser from the Capitol Steps themselves:
“It’s amazing. It’s huge. It’s fabulous. It has nothing to do with Russia. Or Putin. Or the election that the Democrats should have won, and now they’re just making excuses. SAD! Hear from Donald Trump and Melania, James Comey, Vladimir Putin, Elizabeth Warren, and even Hillary Clinton as they make comedy great again!”
So, come join the Capitol Steps and the Arc of Carroll County for a night of satire, fun, and fund raising. Tickets can be purchased online at The Arc of Carroll County’s website or at any of the public libraries.
