LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Community members joined together Friday night to recognize an organization that helps those that are visually impaired or disabled.
Dozens attended the 30th-anniversary celebration for Radio Eye at the Marriott City Center. The organization is the state’s only radio reading and information service for people who are visually impaired, physically disabled, or can’t read because of a disability.
Those who tune in are able to stay updated on everything from sales at the grocery store to the latest news and health updates. It’s a service that event organizers say is needed in the community.
“We serve about two thousand people here in Lexington and that’s probably less than one percent. These past couple years we’ve read to our listeners the different ways you can get covid vaccines, things that were closed for covid and when they opened back up, now it’s where to get your boosters how to get the at home tests from the government mailed to you, just think about it if you couldn’t read it for yourself that’s what we do,” said Amy Hatter, Executive Director, Radio Eye.
Hall of fame members were also inducted at the event. For more information about the organization visit Radio Eye.
