Outlook Nebraska, Inc. (ONI), a nonprofit organization providing employment and other opportunities for people who are blind and visually impaired, is having its 2013 Banquet to Celebrate the Capabilities of the Blind on Oct. 18. It will be taking place at the LaVista Embassy Suites Convention Center, 12520 Westport Parkway. The evening will highlight the accomplishments of ONI, its associates and others that value the impact that ONI is able to make on the lives of the blind. It will include a cash bar reception, banquet, awards and a special segment highlighting the very successful first-ever Camp Abilities Nebraska. Camp Abilities Nebraska, a week-long sports camp developed to help blind children grow their self-confidence and independence, was co-sponsored by Outlook Nebraska, Inc. and Boys Town National Research Hospital. KFAB Radio’s morning show host Scott Voorhees will be the emcee for the event. Tickets are $60, and a table of 10 is $600. According to ONI CEO Eric Stueckrath, the funding from this event will benefit opportunities for the blind and visually impaired to break through the barriers of economic and personal independence.
