Vision Loss Resources Starlight Ball

110715vlr211We did it! Our second annual event – The Starlight Ball – was a tremendous success.

We were excited to welcome long-time supporters and new donors alike that evening. With the incredible generosity of all of our guests we raised more than $40,000 for programming and services!

Everything about the evening was intended to immerse guests in our mission.

A highlight of the evening were the mini “demonstrations” before dinner. Our staff and participants were excited to share with guests examples of the work we do day in and day out. They had a great time sharing their personal stories about the VLR programming that keeps them growing and learning and creating new experiences.

The most often comment overheard was: “I had no idea Vision Loss Resources does that!”

The demo tables helped guests to better understand the ways we directly impact participants, and maybe most importantly, how their donations that evening would be used – in our community services programming.

The video we shared that evening now appears on our home page.

We were delighted to share such a meaningful experience with guests – building a community of care for people with vision loss.
