Baby, Let's Have a Party!

A young guest at the Blind Babies anniversary celebration pets a GDB dog.
This past Saturday, GDB had the pleasure of hosting the Blind Babies Foundation’s 60th anniversary celebration on our California campus. More than 400 people, including families currently involved with the program, alumni, supporters and vision professionals came out to enjoy the festivities.

And the festivities were many! There were Aztec dancers and belly dancers; a magic show by The Great Blindini; wonderful food prepared and served up by local Lions Club members; ice cream treats courtesy of Ben and Jerry's... and of course lots of GDB dogs and pups on hand for pets and wags!

It was a wonderful day, and we're looking forward to participating in more activities with Blind Babies in the future. If you'd like to see all of the photos from the festive afternoon, please visit our flickr site.

  1. I was there with my guide dog puppy in training, Don. Don enjoyed meeting lots of children- and giving them lots of puppy kisses. It was a really fun afternoon- Guide Dogs and Blind Babies are both such incredible foundations! I hope Guide Dogs will host of these events in the future!
