Congratulations to BBF Board Member Sharon Sacks, recent recipient of the Mary K. Bauman Award! This award was established in 1982 in order to honor an individual who has made significant and outstanding contributions to the education of children and youth who are blind or visually impaired. Congratulations once again Sharon on this much deserved honor!

On Saturday evening, May 10, in the Willow Glen area of the south bay, the San Jose Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie 8 sponsored a dinner, silent auction, raffle and night of music to benefit Blind Babies Foundation. The chosen date on Mothers’ Day Weekend was a perfect backdrop for the Eagles, who were instrumental in establishing Mothers’ Day as a treasured American holiday. Scrumptious barbecue with homemade salads and delicious dessert was expertly prepared by Eagles Board Members, with James Scettrini adding his time, heart and soul to the preparations.
BBF alum family Scott Connelly, his wife, Vita, and their daughters Lola and Camila told the audience about their first meeting with BBF Vision Impairment Specialist Amy Brody, who brought specialized toys and materials for their daughter, Camila, provided support at home, and demonstrated expertise during ophthalmology visits that made all the difference in their family’s life.
We salute the Eagles for a great evening and thank them for their continued support of the exceptional work of BBF!
