Azure Provides Personalized Bottled Water for Event

July 14, 2015

Seeing isn’t always believing, especially as New Vision for Independence in Lake and Sumter counties celebrates its 10th anniversary providing services and resources to blind and visually impaired people.

As part of its community outreach efforts, Azure Water in Leesburg, Florida provided personalized bottled water for an event to bring attention to New Vision for Independence’ education and services campaigns.

The ribbon cutting event is taking place from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the Tavares Pavilion on Lake Dora, 200 South Disson Ave. It is free and open to the public. A dessert and cash bar is being provided.

Chambers of commerce for Lake Eustis, Leesburg, Tavares, Mount Dora, Lady Lake and Sumter County will hold ribbon cuttings to commemorate New Vision for Independence’s milestone.
