For the nearly 400 attendees at the Greater Richmond ARC's annual Ladybug Wine Tasting and Silent Auction on May 18, the silent auction that included a Gibson guitar donated by The Martin Agency, as well as a guitar and ukuleles from Hohner, Inc., was music to their ears.

Held at the Torque Club at the Richmond Raceway Complex, guests bid on more than 200 silent auction items while sampling sliced tenderloin from Arcadia restaurant and marinated lamb lollipops from Fleming's Steakhouse, as well as foods from other local restaurants and a large selection of West Coast wines.

More than $85,000 was raised to support the Infant and Child Development Services program at ARC, which provides specialized therapies for children with developmental disabilities. Proceeds will help fund therapy scholarships, purchase children's eyeglasses and hearing aids, and foster developmental playgroups in homes, day care centers and homeless shelters.

The annual event was considered a "success by any measure," said Doug Payne, ARC's communications director. "It was an opportunity for food, fun and the chance to meaningfully contribute to our organization and the community as a whole."
