30th Annual Fishbowl Fundraiser

New date - Sunday, September 13, 2020

As we have watched the reports regarding the coronavirus, we have made the decision to POSTPONE our Fishbowl event.

The new date is scheduled for Sunday, September 13, 2020.
Lancaster Country Club, 1:oo-5:00 p.m.


Arch Street Center is excited to host our 30th Annual Fishbowl Fundraiser on Sunday, April 19, 2020 . This event has been our hallmark event since its debut as the ‘Rainbow Rendezvous’ in 1990. Plenty of changes have happened in its 30-year history, but one thing has remained constant… that every dollar raised goes to help Arch Street Center support the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness. This year’s Fishbowl Fundraiser promises to be a momentous occasion featuring a new and exciting location, the Lancaster Country Club, the event will be held on a Sunday afternoon, and will feature live music by Bobbi Carmitchell (she performed at the FIRST event!). A special shout out to our presenting sponsor, Sequinox, for helping make this event one for the history books!
Arch Street Center has provided a safe, nurturing environment, meals and recreation facilities for adults living with serious mental illness in Lancaster County since 1983. The Fishbowl Fundraiser is the Center’s primary annual fundraising event.

Membership Dues

At $12.00 a year, Arch Street Center membership dues are a way for members to feel a sense of ownership of the Center, providing a hand up, not a hand out. But the fee doesn’t cover the cost of benefits that membership provides. Because many of our members would not be able to participate in activities, or even membership, if these fees were raised, contributions from community partners like you are crucial to our ability to provide our members with meals, activities, and a safe space to call their own.

18,000 Meals

There is no more basic human need than that of sustenance. Arch Street Center provides two full meals, snacks, coffee, tea and cold beverages daily. Additionally we occasionally provide care packages of canned and packages goods for members in particular need. Many of our members experience food insecurity and periods of homelessness. Our food offerings are a vital resource and for some members may be the only meals they have on a given day. We estimate that over 45 members eat at the Center on a daily basis.
That’s nearly 18,000 meals per year!
