Wendy Montalbano was the top fundraiser with a total of $2620, exceeding her fundraising goal by $120. Wendy was inspired to raise over $2500 in order to win the iPad for her son, Jeffrey, who was born without sight. On her fundraising site, Wendy says, “Jeffrey’s teachers and therapist all use an iPad for music therapy, vision stimulation, cause and effect, etc. He also can play the drums and piano on the iPad. The iPad is one of very few things we have identified to bring such enjoyment to Jeffrey.” The iPad is an essential learning tool for Jeffrey so we were all very excited when Wendy reached passed the $2500 fundraising goal!
The event honored Dr. Amy Coburn, a PBT board member and a
huge advocate of the Eye Stroll. Dr. Coburn raised a total of $1620 and was the
second top fundraiser!
