“Anchor Center children really do ‘see life differently.’ They make you realize that even with unbelievable challenges, there is hope. Given professional and loving support and witnessing the success stories of others, families and students continually succeed. We were thrilled that this year’s event took place at Anchor Center’s wonderful, state of the art facility. Sponsors and donors got a first-hand look at how their generosity will be utilized.” – Craig Sellers, Pie Principal

Funds will be used to support our center-based programs for infants, toddlers and preschoolers which include activites to help children develop socialization, motor and verbal development getting them ready for the next phase of their educational experience usually in their local public school.” – Kristine Wolfe, Development Director, Anchor Center for Blind Children
