CVI Reunites Clients and Staff After 50 Years of Serving the Blind Community

ATLANTA, GA – November 12, 2012 – On Thursday, November 15 the Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) will reunite clients, staff, volunteers and donors from the past 50 years to celebrate its 50th anniversary providing services, advocacy and employment to people who are blind or vision impaired.

“Our 50th anniversary reunion is a chance to connect with the thousands of people who have contributed to CVI’s success through the years,” said CVI’s President, Subie Green. “Each one has played an important role in creating the CVI organization. It’s time to celebrate the opportunities that are increasing every day for people with vision loss and to celebrate CVI, the organization that was often the first step in introducing independence and hope.”

To mark the special occasion, CVI will host a tour of its facility at 739 West Peachtree St. NW from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Guests will enjoy light refreshments and acknowledgments from special guests at the AT&T Midtown II Building in the Multipurpose Room from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event entrance will be on Cypress Street between Third and Fourth Street.

Each year, more than 5,000 people from Atlanta and all over Georgia turn to CVI to help them adjust to – or improve – a life with limited or no sight. CVI is Georgia’s largest comprehensive, fully accredited private facility providing rehabilitation services for the blind and visually impaired.
