Avett, who has dazzled audiences worldwide with his rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody is a shining example of someone who doesn’t let his disability prevent him from pursuing his dreams. At The Chicago Lighthouse we empower thousands of individuals like Avett each year. That is why supporting our critical services is so important.

FLAIR proceeds support children’s programs at The Chicago Lighthouse, which help children who are blind, visually impaired or disabled meet developmental and educational milestones, build supportive relationships, and fully participate in their communities.
