Welcome to Insightful Visionaries
Why We Do the Honors
The 2019 Visionary Honors Awards is an annual charity event hosted by Insightful Visionaries. We believe it is important to encourage and recognize leaders and organizations for their outstanding service to the blind/visually impaired community. Their dedication to helping the community achieve employment and independent living goals, deserves recognition. This year’s event was held at the Hampton Inn & Suites Crabtree/Raleigh, on Saturday, June 8, 2019.
CELEBRATING THE LEGACY OF GREAT MUSIC
The Visionary Honors event was introduced in 2017 when Insightful Visionaries hosted the National Blind Idol Semi-Finals.
Donations generated through the “Legends” benefit concert, will help fund the 4 Senses Wellness Program to provide training and preparation for a job and entrepreneurial opportunities.
Insightful Visionaries Launches the 2020 National YOU Beauty Reveal Symposium
Please be advised that we have been closely monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) and the potential impact it could have on our upcoming our YOU Beauty Reveal Symposium scheduled for April 25, 10-4 p.m. at the Raleigh Convention Center and as a result and out of an abundance of concern for the safety of all involved we have decided to reschedule the event. The NEW date will be June 13. The time and venue will remain the same.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
