Valley Center for the Blind is renewing its annual Spring Picnic on June 3rd, 2017 at Inspiration Park in Fresno, CA. This event is meant to provide the blind and visually impaired community members, their families and friends with the opportunity to join together for fun games, great prizes and good food.

Specially adapted games will “level the playing field” having participants with vision play in blindfolds for highly competitive games with prizes like gift cards, health and wellness monitors and more. The top prize will be an apple watch. Participants will be able to learn more about vision loss and get a firsthand feeling for how their family and friends experience life.

Established in 1973, Valley Center for the Blind provides services for over 300 blind and visually impaired individuals annually. Services include educational in independence skills such as organization and labeling, using computers and smart phones, safe travel using a white cane, fall prevention, safe cooking and home management with limited or no sight. VCB also offers a variety of recreational programs and counseling and support groups. In addition to serving the Fresno County, Valley Center for the Blind extends its reach to the surrounding Madera, Tulare, Kings and Kern Counties.
