PERRYSBURG - Vision-impaired sled dog racer Rachael Scdoris will be the featured speaker Thursday at "The EyEvent," presented by the Sight Center of Northwest Ohio.
Scordis was born with a rare vision disorder leaving her with extreme vision loss. The disease, however, did not staunch her dreams of becoming a competitive sled dog racer. She was the first legally blind person to complete the famous Iditarod race in Alaska.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn and is an annual fundraiser to provide services for visually impaired and blind individuals residing in 16 counties of Northwest Ohio.
The cost of dinner and entertainment for the evening is $90 per person.
For information, contact the Sight Center at (419) 720-3937.
