Welcome to 2020!
Message from Mary
As we celebrate the New Year and all of the positive changes happening at the Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches, we should take a moment and celebrate all of the accomplishments of last year! Over 4,000 babies, children, teens, adults and seniors received services from Lighthouse. Those numbers are staggering, and we expect will continue to grow as the senior population ages.

In order to continue to grow with this need, we must look for opportunities for additional revenue streams and creative fundraising. Our board has implemented several strategies for this year including hiring a new Development and Marketing Manager, hosting an inaugural fundraising luncheon, adding more awareness and fundraising events, researching new grants and preparing for an exciting 2021 - our 75th anniversary!

Remember, Lighthouse serves all populations including those with low vision.
If you or someone you know needs services or just needs answers, don't hesitate to call us at 561-586-5600 or visit our website .

Our goal this year is to keep you more informed, more social media updates, updates on the website and this monthly newsletter. Please forward and share with others, or invite them to sign-up on our website or follow us on Facebook.

Thank you for your continued support of Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches.

Sincerely,

Mary Allen
Director of Vision Services
