Vision Beyond Sight is the Blind Children’s Learning Center’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Participants may select the Enjoy from Home option, allowing donors to register for one or two individuals to enjoy the virtual 

experience from the comfort of their home, or the Reconnect option, which allows sponsors at all levels to host a private gathering at an appropriately sized home or corporate space, enjoying exclusive benefits, the coveted in-person experience, and all of the fun of the virtual event, too. Funds raised from the event support the nonprofit’s full spectrum of programs for children with visual and other disabilities and their families. For more information, please visit BLINDKIDS.ORG
