Rhode Island White Cane Day

Rhode Island will celebrate the white cane on October 15!

The white cane is a powerful symbol of independence for people living with visual impairments. Yet very few people understand the importance of this valuable tool.

IN-SIGHT is pleased to be joining with the Veterans Health Administration, National Federation of the Blind, and the Lions Sight Foundation on a White Cane Day awareness event at the Garden City Center Gazebo on Friday. October 15 from 3 PM – 5 PM.

This is a free event that will include, live music, demonstrations, guest speakers, sweet treats, awesome giveaways, and much more!

We hope that you will be able to join us and bring your family and friends along too. Everyone is encouraged to wear cane colors such as red, white, and black to show their support for this valuable and important tool.

This event is sponsored by the Rhode Island Lions Sight Foundation, the Veterans Administration Health Service, National Federation of the Blind – Rhode Island Chapter, Rhode Island Office of Rehabilitation Services, and IN-SIGHT.
