The Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CCBVI) held its signature Valentine’s Day fundraiser at the Stockton location on Sunday.
“This is our annual Valentines event to get everyone together and show their ‘heart’ for the blind and visually impaired,” said Jennifer Boylan, CCBVI social media coordinator.
The benefit offered sweethearts an early Valentine celebration and featured a selection of fillings and toppings at the build-your-own omelet and waffle stations.
Diners could choose their omelet fillings such as diced meats and a variety of diced vegetables.
Toppings at the waffle station included fruit, ice-cream, and flavored syrups. The beverage menu consisted of champagne, orange juice, coffee, and milk.
In addition to enjoying hearty servings of food on the festive menu, visitors could also purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes donated by the surrounding business community.
According to CCBVI marketing coordinator, Trina Law, the Valentine brunch was the second fundraiser for the year. The first benefit was the crab feed in January and, coincidentally, the weather was also rainy explained Ms. Law. “CCBVI appreciated everyone coming out in the rain to support the blind and visually impaired of San Joaquin Valley,” said Ms. Law.
