Our annual Redefining Vision Garden Party on Thursday, August 17th, 2017 was a night to remember! We welcomed 175 guests to Ethel L. Dupar’s Fragrant Garden and raised over $20,000 for the Lighthouse’s Employee and Community Services programs! Guests were inspired by Lighthouse Production Worker Melinda Slovernick, who shared her personal story of losing part of her vision after she was involved in a severe car accident leaving her in a coma for three months. Click here to see more photos and a description of the event.

You can continue to make an impact in the lives of Lighthouse employees by making a donation today to support opportunities for employment, independence, and self-sufficiency for individuals who are blind, DeafBlind, and blind with other disabilities.
