“There are so many great organizations out there waiting to help people who have lost their vision. I’m glad MindsEye makes a point of connecting listeners to them.” - Rita, retired accessibility instructor

On Saturday, May 14th, MindsEye supporters gathered at the Infield II of Busch Stadium at Ballpark Village for the second annual Vision for the Game. The day featured a ceremony to honor individuals who have supported blind athletics and the game of beepball and a live beepball demonstration.

MindsEye volunteers make the mission possible. They provide the information listeners use to understand their communities, make healthy decisions, and even enjoy a relaxing afternoon. This past April 9th, MindsEye staff had the chance to celebrate the support the volunteers give to the blind and visually impaired in St. Louis.

With information about the Zika virus and accompanying birth defects becoming public, doctors and officials are counseling pregnant women to take special measures to reduce the risk of infection. Still, the risk for older adults who contract Zika may also be dangerous. To help the many MindsEye listeners in this demographic, we have the latest information here.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! For 13 years MindsEye has borrowed this sentiment – “Let the good times roll!” – from Mardi Gras revelers and used it for  an evening with a mission, “An Evening for Sight.”

Each year MindsEye asks listeners exactly this question. Based on surveys, we tailor programming to fit their needs. With 2015 surveys in, our listeners have spoken – and we have tweaked the schedule to incorporate those changes.
