Tenuta Torciano is proud to have supported the ACBVI association (Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired) at the Wine School event on November 24, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona. Thanks to an exclusive fundraising tasting seminar in front of about 70 people, all the proceeds from the evening went to ACBVI and their mission to help people with visual impairments. A fundraising wine event where guests could discover exceptional wines, Tuscan oils and vinegar, along with authentic foods to share an authentic Tuscan experience.
Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, ACBVI, is a 501c3 non-profit human services agency that provides comprehensive rehabilitation and social recreation services to adults who are blind or visually impaired in Maricopa County and in the state of Arizona.
Founded in 1947 and incorporated in 1956, the Center’s main facility is located in the Lions Foundation of Arizona campus at 3100 East Roosevelt Street in Phoenix. It was planned and built by twenty-eight Lions Clubs who formed a voluntary workforce and affiliation named in honor of Melvin Jones, an Arizona native and founder of Lions Club International. This affiliation of Lions Club members and volunteer union labor built the original building on property donated by Lion Keith Taylor and his wife Gladys. The building was dedicated in 1964 by then Secretary of State, Wesley Bolen.
ACBVI provides a wide array of rehabilitation and social recreation services for adults including Assistive Technology, Rehabilitation Counseling and Teaching, Diabetes Education, Low Vision, Orientation and Mobility and Social Recreation. In order to provide these services, the Center also provides supportive services including Information and Referral, Intake Counseling and Transportation Coordination.
ACBVI is now the resource for the iCanConnect program, a federal program that provides communications equipment to qualified individuals with Combined Vision and Hearing Loss (CVHL) in the state of Arizona.
