The Arc is bringing back its annual Great Dream Machine Sweepstakes this year, and also dabbling in a film festival.
The Great Dream Machine Sweepstakes will make one lucky winner $10,000 richer on September 6th. That winner will then have an opportunity to play the Lucky Envelope Game on September 27th for a chance to win up to an additional $100,000.
Tickets cost just $10, but the more you buy the more you save. All proceeds go to benefit the Arc which helps the intellectually and developmentally disabled. Click here to purchase tickets.
The Arc is also presenting its first ever Sprout Film Festival.

The earlier showing at the Rockford Public Library starts at 2 pm. The later showing will be at the Nordlof Center in downtown Rockford at 7 pm.
Each screening will feature a different group of films tailored to the audience.
Tickets for the general public are just $5.
