Who We Are

Dedicated. Passionate. Hard-working.

We are The PARCA Auxiliary.

The PARCA Auxiliary, formed in 1985, is an organization dedicated to philanthropic endeavors and is the fundraising arm of PARCA (Partners and Advocates for Remarkable Children and Adults). PARCA is a private, nonprofit association that serves people with developmental disabilities and their families in the Bay Area. PARCA is committed to providing opportunities for disabled people of all ages, who we call our ‘Clients’, to help them experience choice, control and individuality in every area of their lives.

Every spring, the Auxiliary hosts a luncheon and fashion show as its primary fundraiser for PARCA. The generous donations from the event’s sponsors and guests help contribute to the success of PARCA’s many programs. Since its founding, the PARCA Auxiliary has raised over $4 million for PARCA. Today, the Auxiliary consists of 55 Active & Provisional Members, 280 Sustainers and 14 Founding Members. The PARCA Auxiliary also organizes and hosts numerous events and activities for the PARCA Clients and their families throughout the year, enabling both the Auxiliary members and PARCA Clients to meet, have fun and build a community together!
