Welcome To Central Illinois Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired



Dueling Pianos was a Hit!

The Dueling Pianos Fundraiser was a remarkable event!  Walter and Frisbie of Howlin’ on the Water did an excellent job taking on the challenges of our guests’ music requests.  The Broadway Lounge provided a delectable food buffet.  Stay tuned because we will be doing tis again soon.
