Welcome To Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired



8th Annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner — March 23, 2018

Please join the Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired for our annual Volunteer Recognition Banquet. This is an after-work, business casual event that, first and foremost, publicly recognizes the volunteers whose time and talents keep the Center open. Second and in keeping with our mission, we strive to provide a meaningful social experience for our patrons with low vision/blindness  while offering an interesting and entertaining one for our guests. Third and in full transparency, the banquet also serves as an important source of funding. Ticket revenue beyond expenses applies to running the center, and 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction that begins at 5:30 pm flow to the Center. Guest speakers include Ann Hagemann, Dr. Sharon Kherat of Peoria Public Schools District 150, and Molly Pasley. Tickets may be reserved by contacting the Center at (309) 637-3693 or info@cicbvi.org.
