This is Parnell Diggs, Chairman of the National
Federation of the Blind Imagination Fund. On
June 22 at 8:00 PM EDT, I will appear on a
special broadcast of "Thruoureyes" with Joe
Ruffalo to talk about the Imagination Fund and
the men and women across the nation who are
working so hard to raise funds for the programs
of the National Federation of the Blind.
During the show, Joe and I will be announcing the
individuals who will be invited to ride in the
Blind Driver Challenge car in Orlando on the
afternoon of Tuesday, July 5. To be considered
for selection, you must raise at least $1000 in
the Imagination Fund campaign by June 15 and
register for the National Convention. Details
about how to tune-in to "Thruoureyes" are coming soon.
The top ten Imaginators will be invited
automatically. The remaining participants will
be selected in a drawing from among those who
raise at least $1000 by June 15. For many of
you, the $1000 mark is within sight. In fact,
even if you have not started yet, there is still
plenty of time. I observe that Angela Frederick
of Texas raised over $1000 within seventy-two
hours in May, and she is not finished.
But a ride in the Blind Driver Challenge car is
not the only incentive to raise $1000. We will
read aloud the names of those who raise $1000 at
the National Convention; and of course, there is
the medallion, which will be awarded to anyone
who raises $1000 by the end of the campaign on
July 31. Ultimately, we will all benefit from
supporting the programs of the National
Federation of the Blind. Our future is up to you and me.
Come on, Fellow Federationists, let's race!
