Date: Tuesday, September 22, 2020
Time: 8:30 am - 9:00 am

Audience: The community is welcome to join us!


Imagine going through your day without sight. Everything you do now you would still need to do, without the benefit of your vision. How would you fare?

To prepare for our Dining in the Dark at Home event on November 1, we invite you to participate in our More than Meets the Eye experiences. This coming Tuesday, September 22, you’ll meet Shalene, who at the age of 24, was left with no vision and the challenge of getting around her college campus.  Shalene will be sharing the inspirational story of how she coped with the impact of vision loss and learned to live successfully without sight. In just 20 minutes, you will hear firsthand about the challenges of living with no vision, and we are confident the experience will move you.

Sign up to hear Shalene’s story on Tuesday, September 22, at 8:30 am (Central Time) by registering with this link.

We invite everyone, especially those who can’t join us on September 22, to join us again for another More Than Meets the Eye session on Wednesday, October 21, at 12:00 pm (Central Time).

Whether you are new to Vision Forward or have been a supporter for years, we know you will find our More than Meets the Eye experiences to be inspiring as you prepare to join us for our Dining in the Dark at Home event on November 1.
