CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) This weekend, the Arc of East Central Iowa celebrated every person's gifts and abilities.

Its annual fundraiser at Lindale Mall happened Saturday morning. Families got to play games and see area mascots.

Organizers say they raised more than $70,000 this year.

"It helps with our 800 consumers in the community. It helps not just with our services, which is daycare and helping supportive employment, and expand those services to help more people," Lexi Coberly said
