“I am personally inviting you to my 5th Annual Gala, Dinner and Auction”
My name is Amy Roloff—business professional, wife, mother and leading lady of the hit reality television series, “Little People, Big World” on TLC. We are currently filming our 9th season, making our show the longest running family reality TV show in history, with over 275 episodes, an average of 1 million viewers per week. I am proud to say that our personal family story and mission to promote diversity, has truly had an impact on the way the world understands dwarfism, and difference from person to person.
Through my celebrity, I wanted to give more back from the opportunities I have been given. In 2009, I formed the Amy Roloff Charity Foundation (ARCF) to help non-profit organizations raise funds for children and youth who face social, emotional, mental and physical challenges. Since our creation, ARCF has raised over $750K in new giving and in kind donations for local, national and international non-profit organizations and causes. In 2013 ARCF is developing a Character Value Program to offer schools and other organizations locally and eventually nationally.
I can’t do this alone. It takes a team to change the life of a child and your support and participation will make a valuable contribution to our team effort. You can help make a difference and contribute by becoming a sponsor, attending the dinner, donating an auction item, inform others, bring someone to the event or you can choose to make a financial contribution via our website.
Your support will help us raise awareness for the communities and organizations we support. Help us make this event a success for the fifth year in a row! Your support is valuable and will help us raise awareness for kids in the communities and organizations we support. Your participation will help us make this year’s annual ARCF Starry Night a success for the 5th year in a row!
Wishing you the best,
Amy J. Roloff

Supporting These Charities in 2013
Supporting these charities in 2013:
NEW! “Little steps… BIG CHANGE!”
Amy Roloff knows too well the harsh climate of a school setting. Growing up and attending school was full of emotional distress, isolation and sometimes even violence. As a victim of bullying and as a parent of four, Amy is determined to end bullying and aggression in our schools.
Through an innovative partnership with Dr. Lisa Aasheim, Ph.D. and Portland State University, kids in grades kindergarten through 12th grade will experience an interactive, age-appropriate, individualized and personalized learning opportunity which centers around four key values: Acceptance, Respect, Compassion, and Freedom. (ARCF). This program will reduce verbal and physical aggression amongst learners so that the school climate is one of physical, psychological and emotional safety. A student who feels safe at school is free of the unnecessary distractions which negatively impact consistent attendance, attention and achievement.
