Join Our Blind Ambition Team

Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision Logo

Each year, the Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision forms a team for the Annual Rock n Roll Marathon.  The BLIND AMBITION team is sponsored by Gulfstream and this years fundraising dollars will be designated to updating  technology in the Center’s Computer Lab.

Here’s how it works!!!!  Each runner/walker goes online to www.everydayhero.com  and sets up a fundraising page under the team name “RUNNING BYTES”.  Once you complete your page and set up your fundraising goal…the fun begins.  You can send out daily or weekly updates to let friends and family members know you’re running and need their financial support.  Each runner commits to a minimum $250 goal to support the Center.

Not on social media????  No problem.  You can still join the team and collect donations.  Donations will be tallied and prizes will be awarded to  Top Female Fundraiser and Top Male FundraiserYOU DO NOT HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MARATHON TO RAISE MONEY.

Not a runner; but want to walk?  It doesn’t matter if you’re a runner or a walker…there’s a place for you!

Dining in The Dark

What happens in the dark?

Dining in The Dark is a rare and unique sensory experience that you will never forget. Guests enter the Embassy Suite’s beautiful dining area in two phases. First, a blackout chamber allows your eyes to adjust to complete darkness. After five minutes, you will be escorted to your table by your SWAT guide. Once at your table, your senses will begin their journey that will take you to a whole new heightened appreciation of smell, taste, sound, and touch.

I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God made world, not a manmade world.

We are pleased to offer your company the opportunity to be part of this very special event. Dining in The Dark is a wonderful opportunity for team-building, as well as increasing diversity and disability awareness at your company.
