Hosted by Bessemer Trust, Shutts and Bowen, LLP and Commissioner Sally Heyman, more than 200 of South Florida’s philanthropists and community leaders attended Miami Lighthouse for the Blind See the Light Luncheon at La Gorce Country Club. Celebrating the completion of its Spencer Educational Empowerment Center Challenge for a new Wing for Blind Youth, operating funds were raised to support programs in the new facility, such as, Braille literacy, computer and digital technology and math laboratory curriculum, to empower young children and teenagers with skills to be competitive and highly productive despite their blindness.

Major contributors to the capital campaign honored with ceramic plaques made by blind children and adults were The Reverend Marta Weeks, Jan and Dan Lewis, Penny and Roe Stamps, Jacquelyn Hegamyer Hinckley and Katharine Hegamyer. Ruby Jubilarians honored at the 80th Anniversary were also recognized. For more information about Miami Lighthouse for the Blind call Cameron Sisser, 786-362-7515 or visit
