Ice Cream Fundraiser SUCCESS! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out last night to Brusters (7/22) and supported the Lighthouse Summer Transition Program teens who served ice cream! They made $560, mostly from your tips. They are going to have a great time in St. Augustine next week, and are even donating $150 of the money they raised to the Early Intervention program to help the children younger than themselves. WCTV and WTXL covered the event, plus the Democrat came and is doing a more in depth story on the program. Below is the blurb online at WCTV. Thanks again, everyone! - Barbara http://www.wctv.tv/news/headlines/51444252.html Visually Impaired Students Serve Up A Summer Treat Posted: 12:23 AM Jul 23, 2009 Reporter: Liza Park Email Address: liza.park@xxxxxxx July is national ice cream month... and it's a perfect time to not only eat the icy treat... but serve it too. That's what several blind and visually impaired teens with the Lighthouse of the Big Bend were doing Wednesday night. (7-22-09) The students are raising money with the help of Bruster's Ice Cream shop. They're saving up for a trip with the Lighthouse Summer Transition Program which teaches them independent living and career skills...like having a job in the food service industry. "It also shows everyone in the world that Hey we may be visually impaired, we may be blind but we can still do this," says Katelyn Arrington, a visually impaired Lighthouse student. The students do mock job interviews, a community service project and learn about computer technologies. On 7/23/09, Darla J.
