'Night for Sight' gala in Scottsdale to benefit Foundation for Blind Children

Posted

The Foundation for Blind Children's annual "Night for Sight" gala returns in October, hosted at a Scottsdale steakhouse. 

“There’s been plenty of things I wasn’t supposed to do but I wouldn’t accept no. I kept going,” 18-year-old Adonis Watt said in a press release. He developed congenital glaucoma after jumping in a pool when he was five. Still, Watt has conquered school, football fields, basketball courts, tracks and more without sight.

Foundation for Blind Children’s annual “Night for Sight” presented by Ambassador Don Tapia celebrates students and clients just like Watt. Veronica Watt, Adonis’ mother, credits FBC for her son’s success.

“FBC really did teach me that I can’t limit him. He’s unstoppable. He’s going to be who he is and I need to get on board,” she said in the release.

“Night for Sight” will be held Saturday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. in Dominick’s Steakhouse located at 15169 N. Scottsdale Road. 

The evening will include upscale dining as well as stories of success from clients and students and an after party presented by Waymo. Attendees or those unable to attend can also enter “Date Night for a Year.” The raffle winner will receive $300 per month for one year to spend at Dominick’s Steakhouse, Ocean 44 or Steak 44.
