Honoree: Almesia Blankenship
Honored by: Blind Children’s Learning Center
Cause Area: Education
Almesia is the artist Blind Children’s Learning Center never knew it needed. In her early volunteerism, Almesia lovingly illustrated adaptive books that children with visual impairments can engage with. Since then, she partnered with Blind Children’s Learning Center to help create Vision Beyond Sight, a dining in the dark experience. This special event benefitted greatly from Almesia’s dedication. Without her, the overall experience and fundraising success of this event just wouldn’t be the same. As Blind Children’s Learning Center remains dedicated to giving children with visual impairments the specialized resources they need to succeed, Almesia’s volunteerism helps make that possible.
