This year’s event will be especially inspiring as we celebrate NWABA’s growth in improving the quality of life for individuals with visual impairments in our community and the generosity of our supporters who have helped us get there along the way.
Guests will enjoy exciting live and silent auction items, including a trip to Iceland and tickets to Elton John, powerful testimonials from athletes, a delicious meal with fine wine, and VIP after party. All net proceeds will support Northwest Association for Blind Athlete’s mission of helping individuals with visual impairments build confidence, improve self-esteem, enhance physical activity, develop friendships and gain the skills, tools, and resources to reach their greatest potential in all areas of life.
The mission of Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. A group of visually impaired students formed the Association in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity. Today, NWABA is a rapidly expanding charitable organization that provides more than 1,500 children, youth, adults and military veterans with visual impairments tailored programming, which improves self-confidence and self-esteem, promotes independence, creates an inclusive community of supporters, and builds the skills necessary to succeed in all areas of life including school and employment.
