SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The Walker Family of Scarsdale will be honored at the Arc of Westchester Foundation's 10th annual “A Matter of Taste” food and wine event Wednesday at Westchester Country Club in Rye.
The Arc of Westchester is the oldest and largest agency in the county serving children, teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Walker family’s association with Arc of Westchester began 30 years ago when John and Susan’s daughter, Elizabeth, graduated from high school and was looking for a work program. Over the years, Arc of Westchester provided her with a series of ever more challenging work opportunities.
She is now a dedicated employee at eDocNY, a document management service and a member of its Customer Services Committee, on which she served as vice president. She is also a member of the Self Advocacy Group.
Susan Walker has served as an Arc of Westchester board member and on numerous committees. She has been instrumental in shaping policies and developing funding that will guide its programs in the future.
The “A Matter of Taste” fund-raiser is expected to attract more than 300. The event will feature live and silent auctions, a raffle, wine pull and nearly 30 local restaurants and beverage distributors.
“We’re thrilled to be celebrating 10 years of ‘A Matter of Taste,’ which is always a festive opportunity to connect with our friends in the community,” said Anne Sweazey, executive director, Arc of Westchester Foundation in a statement.
