Dear Lighthouse clients, supporters, partners and friends,
As we move into the fall, six months after COVID-19 shut down our in-person services and changed our world, Lighthouse for the Blind and it’s committed staff are continuing to provide essential training, resources and support virtually. Our book and technology clubs meet through Blind Cafe monthly, our students (of all ages) participate in fun and educational zoom chats and many of our clients are receiving life-changing assistive technology training.
The low vision clinic is now open by appointment only. All staff are in full PPE gear and are keeping patients socially distant. If any client needs to visit our facility, please call in advance to schedule an appointment.
While our offices may be closed until further notice, we are very much here, ready and willing to serve. I'm excited to report we are making plans for a historic celebration, our 75th Anniversary coming in 2021. We will celebrate all year with a new branding campaign, a new donor recognition wall, fun events and coming in April, 2021 - The 75th Anniversary "Eye Ball." This stunning evening at the Pelican Club in Jupiter, will feature an outdoor cocktail reception and silent auction on the waterfront deck overlooking the Jupiter Lighthouse. Dinner and awards recognition ceremony will follow, with entertainment throughout the evening including blind or visually impaired entertainers. Underwriting opportunities are available now, so please join our celebration by helping to fund this historic event. Contribute now and show your support of the only Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches to serve our area for 75 years!
We hope to see you soon, in the meantime, please stay safe, continue to wear your mask and if you need services or support call our office at 561-586-5600.
