Your Sponsorship Supports that Mission

The primary beneficiary for our inaugural season is Guiding Eyes for the Blind a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides superbly bred and trained guide dogs to men and women who are blind or visually impaired. Guiding Eyes for the Blind is fully dependent upon contributions to fulfill its mission. Services are offered free of charge to the blind or visually impaired and to families of children with autism. Their Headquarters and Training Center is located in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. and the Canine Development Ctr. is in Patterson, N.Y. All Guiding Eyes Dogs expand horizons for people to achieve life’s Goals.


Amongst the sea of philanthropic and NFP organizations its refreshing to find one whose members are so focused on raising awareness and funds to help those who are visually impaired.  This is a great organization ran very efficiently and professionally for a great cause.  Three Cheers!
