We are looking forward to WSD 2013 on October 10, 2013. Please join us for sensational international cuisine (ask last year’s guests), fellowship, and an inspiring message from our keynote speaker, Mike May. Mike was blinded at age three from a chemical explosion. In 2000, he regained partial vision after a procedure using stem cells. He holds the record for downhill skiing by a person who was blind (65-mph!) and he holds three bronze medals from the 1984 Winter Paralympics. Come share with us in a delightful evening to benefit CBI and even the opportunity to receive a door prize.
For more information on the event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CBI held it’s 8th annual celebration of World Sight Day on October 3, 2012. The entertainment for the evening was renowned blind sailor Scott Duncan, who was part of the first two person blind team to sail across the Pacific Ocean. The event raised over $60,000, with an additional $15,000 donated from a matching grant from the Johnson Foundation (Madison, WI). These generous donations will provide sight to more than 3,750 men, women and children in developing countries and Dane County. The support at World Sight Day was truly remarkable; we are able to continue our work in the fight against blindness because of this strong community (Suresh Chandra, MD).
