On Thursday, December 22nd, the Foundation Fighting Blindness has been invited to assist with the Winter Wonderland event at Tilles Park. Through our volunteer work, the Park will donate $500 to the Foundation! This is a great opportunity to be a part of a holiday tradition and generate much-needed funds for our mission. Please see the details below and let me know if you are interested and available. Feel free to share this information with your friends and family as well. It would be a great group project!
