“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

Meet Jewell Boekenheide, a MindsEye listener and St. Louis resident. Jewell is vivacious and full of life. This is her story.

Cinderella running from the ballroom; a dress worn by Jackie Kennedy; Captain von Trapp ripping a Nazi flag from his window; or a portrait of Van Gogh – these iconic moments and artifacts are beloved by so many – but for over 130,000 people in Missouri and over 240,000 in Illinois, these experiences were limited until now.

If you had to take the interests of MindsEye supporters and put them in one phrase what would it be?

You are familiar with MindsEye and the work the station does. You may even volunteer. You’ve come to events. You’ve donated. But how many listeners do you know?

Wine-pull participants at the Soirée may have been surprised when they received their prizes.
