This past Saturday, three staff members from The Men’s Divorce Law Firm participated in the 23rd Annual Sight and Sole walk benefitting Lighthouse Central Florida. The organization helps local citizens with impaired vision, so Lighthouse invited participants to complete the walk blindfolded to really experience what life is like for the organization’s beneficiaries. Natalie Ramirez, our Client Relations Manager, agreed to be blindfolded and was guided by one of our legal assistants, Jennifer Bunting, through the walk.
Participants were also invited to play games before the event that tested their ability to navigate while blindfolded and learn how to approach guide dogs from local representatives of the organization. “When we’re walking, they’re working. It’s important to talk to us and not distract the dog,” they explained.
At the conclusion of the event, Jason Guy of WESH 2 News announced the award winners for top fundraising and participation. Mrs. Orlando 2010, Dedra Curtis, took pictures with the winners and handed out the trophies. Lighthouse has raised over $11,000 for the event, but donations are still being counted. The Men’s Divorce Law Firm was happy to participate in this event, and looks forward to getting more involved in community events in the coming months.
