TAD News and Notes

NFB of Kentucky TAD Convention Raffle

Congratulations to Denise Carnes who was the recipient of our 2017 TAD raffle, The Triple Play. You go, Denise!

The TAD Triple play included a "Legendary stay, dine and play package", which was donated to TAD by our good friends fromCaesars/ Horseshoe Southern Indiana. In addition, the 2017 TAD raffle includes two football tickets - Cats vs. Ole Miss on November 4th donated by our friends from UK Athletics and $50 in cash from TAD to ease the pain of your travel expenses, just a tad. Tickets will be $5 per chance or 3 for $10! Sandra Williams and Hellena Emery will have your potential winning ticket, so please see them at convention to make your purchase. Remember, you can't win, if you don't make your purchase!

The "Legendary stay, dine and play package" includes a one night stay in the Caesars hotel (sun thru thurs), two food vouchers from a choice of Caesars "Legendary" dining establishments and two $10.00 free casino cash coupons.

There are certainly different strokes for different folks. What might be ideal for one may not be ideal for another. Therefore, it is crucial that we share what we know through qualified resource referrals and educated discussion.

This is really only a piece of the puzzle. Kentuckians are able to take a "test drive of many assistive technology hardware devices before making a final purchase. The Kentucky Assistive Technology Service Network KATS Network can lend many that opportunity.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
