Wild Pants 2020: Constructive Fundraising In A Chaotic Year

The year 2020 has already been one for the record books, and it’s about to get wilder. The Arc of Palm Beach County has transformed its annual Wild Pants Party into an outlandish online fundraiser. Wild Pants 2020 runs Oct. 1 through Oct. 29.

For the first time ever, the Wild Pants competition will be open to everyone. The event has traditionally recruited men from the community to model colorful pants in an effort to raise funds to support programs for people with disabilities.

This year, participants of all ages and genders can make, decorate or buy wild pants to battle for the championship title.

Richard Gaff, the reigning king of Wild Pants is looking to defend his crown. The top fundraiser wins a shopping spree at the Gardens Mall, the Wild Pants Championship belt and major bragging rights.

The winner will be announced live on The Arc’s Facebook page on Friday, Oct. 30.

“The team at The Arc has met the challenges of this year with innovation — finding ways to virtually engage our clients and support their families. We are asking the community to do the same thing; to get creative and have fun, while helping people with disabilities,” said Kimberly McCarten, president and CEO of The Arc of Palm Beach County.
