Jeff’s comments: “I have always believed in staying fit and when Dawn invited us to help her as a guide for Angel Eyes we were glad to help. We have been very blessed and we want to give back to our community and to those who are trying to improve their lives. Dawn is a very caring person and obviously very passionate about helping the visually impaired via Angel Eyes. I feel honored for her to offer me the opportunity to help her even more by serving on her board of directors. I am excited about the possibilities ahead for Angel Eyes and want to assist Dawn in helping even more people in the future.”
