The Arc of Evansville fundraiser will be a TV show instead

The rise in COVID-19 infections has prompted the cancellation of an annual fundraiser. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The Arc of Evansville has decided to cancel the in-person Really Big Show, and will instead do a condensed version on TV.

It will air Saturday evening, Feb 12, on WFIE TV.

The fundraising event, which features local talent in a variety show format was scheduled for Old National Events Plaza.

Host Jeff Lyons says with COVID on a “rapid rise,” officials decided it was best to cancel the large live event.

The Arc provides assistance to individuals with disabilities, including a community employment program.
