The Arc of San Diego President and CEO David Schneider with Ron Blair

The Arc San Diego Foundation, a not-for-profit charitable organization established in 1992 to support the programs and services for people with disabilities at The Arc of San Diego, celebrated its 14th annual Meeting & Recognition Luncheon on June 26.

Among those recognized was Solana Beach resident Ron Blair for his unwavering dedication to The Arc of San Diego for over 30 years. Blair serves on the Arc San Diego Foundation Board of Directors and formerly served on the Board of Trustees. Since the Foundation’s inception, Blair has assisted in raising over $2 million for children and adults with disabilities who receive services through The Arc of San Diego.

Blair’s generosity has profoundly impacted The Arc of San Diego and the 2,500 people with developmental and intellectual disabilities that the organization serves. The Arc San Diego Foundation introduced a new fund named The Ron Blair Future Needs Fund to aid with capital for the future needs of The Arc of San Diego.

“Thank you, Ron Blair, for your service and for believing that every member of our society has the right to live an independent and fulfilling life.”
