MEDINA – Arc of Genesee Orleans extends heartfelt thanks to Nicole Tuohey and the team at Case-Nic Cookies for an impressive $3,200 raised to benefit Arc services during Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in March.

The proceeds came from Nicole’s “Have a Heart” campaign which included a window raffle and the sale of frosted heart cutout cookies!

Arc’s Director of Development Shelley Falitico was on hand at Case-Nic Cookies recently to accept the donation and thanked Nicole and her mother, Mary Lou, for always keeping Arc of Genesee Orleans and Arc Services close to heart.

“The Tuohey family has been connected to our agency for decades and they’re always ready and willing to help,” Falitico said. “We’re so appreciative!”

Nicole and her family urge people not to label others who may seem different because of disabilities and remember that while people share a lot of differences, they are also alike in many ways.
