Make a Difference by Attending a Marcfirst Special Event!

Marcfirst envisions a world where people with developmental disabilities have equal opportunities to choose their own path and make their own decisions. The support Marcfirst receives from individuals and businesses throughout Central Illinois allows us to continue to work toward making our vision a reality.

Marcfirst hosts four major fundraising events each year to provide necessary funding for programs and services. The Bowl-A-Thon is held in early February, the Marcfirst Golf Classic in early June, A D'Vine Affair in early September and Martinis for Marcfirst in early November. In addition to the four fundraising events, Marcfirst also has an annual appeal that shares the story of a person or family that has a deep connection to Marcfirst.

Support from individuals, civic groups and companies play a critical role in providing funding to support programs and services sponsored by Marcfirst.


We always welcome new sponsors and volunteers to help support our fundraising efforts. Please contact us if you would like to become a sponsor or committee member, make a general donation or be included on our mailing list for any of our events.
