Golf outing to benefit visually impaired

Two organizations will host the Visions 2017 Charity Golf Classic. They are the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Chapter of the Foundation Fighting Blindness and Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
The event will benefit the foundation’s research into prevention, treatment and cures for retinal degenerative diseases like macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Usher syndrome and related conditions.
