Center for the Visually Impaired 2016 TRUE BLUE DO: NIGHT VISIONS FUNDRAISER
Supporting CVI’s life-changing services and programs
for those impacted by vision loss
ATLANTA, GA – March 14, 2016 - The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) presents the 13th annual “True Blue Do” fundraiser on Saturday, May 7, 2016. The event will be held at Mason Fine Art, located at 415 Plasters Ave NE, from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. All proceeds benefit CVI.
CVI’s True Blue Do: Night Visions is a fun event whose proceeds give hope to thousands of Georgians with vision loss and their families. With nearly 400 attendees each year, it’s a true party with a purpose. Funds raised through the event support CVI’s life changing services and programs for those impacted by vision loss. This year’s True Blue Do will feature select works from two exhibitions that explore vision in unique ways: Billy Howard and Laurie Shock’s Blind/Sight, Conversations with the Visually Impaired and Stephanie Eley’s Invisible to Others. Mary Ann and Dick Cook are Honorary Chairs of this year’s event, recognizing their many years of dedicated service to CVI.
Guests will enjoy a casual evening featuring great food, cocktails, silent and live auctions, the opportunity to “Flip for a Trip” to win round-trip airline tickets, an oversized, interactive “Paint-by-Numbers” activity, and much more!
CVI is the only nonprofit organization in Georgia that provides vision rehabilitation services and support to people of all ages. CVI President Fontaine M. Huey said, “Night Visions raises critical operating support for CVI, so that we can provide life-changing training and services to people of all ages who are coping with vision impairment. From infants and toddlers to school-age children, working-age adults, and seniors, CVI empowers those individuals to live every day with independence and dignity.”
Tickets for the event are $125 per person and include open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres and all activities and entertainment. Sponsorship opportunities are still available and range from $500 to $15,000.
