About

This year marks The Lighthouse's 100th anniversary and we will be hosting two major events in celebration. The first event will be our Garden Party which will take place during the evening on Thursday July 19. The second event will be a gala hosted at The Museum of Flight on Saturday September 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. We will be needing volunteers who will be able to help guide attendees who are blind using the sighted guide technique. In order to volunteer, you will need to attend two Blindness Awareness training sessions that we will be hosting. These training sessions are required for volunteers to serve in this capacity. The first training will be held on Tuesday May 15 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the second training will be held on Wednesday August 15 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. We just ask that volunteers commit to serving at one of these scheduled events if signing up for a training.
