What is 2020 Vision Quest?

We lead and inspire students and professionals to reach their peak potential while providing financial support for crucial vision services.

2020 Vision Quest supports two organizations—Future In Sight, and the internationally renowned Guiding Eyes for the Blind—to help ensure that life-changing services for the blind may always continue.

Help us Reach the Peak!

In early October, a 2020 Vision Quest team finished a transformative hiking trip in Peru at the Rainbow Mountain Ridge, beyond a doubt one of the world’s most spectacular sights. While you may not get any closer to it than pictures, you can participate in the premier event of 2020 Vision Quest’s fall season, the 8th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Silent Auction on Saturday, Nov. 18. at the Courtyard by Marriott in Nashua.

We haven’t yet met our goal of a sold-out event, meaning now’s the time to purchase tickets as a table (the best value), a pair or individuals.

Peak Potential promises great food (Smoke spice-rubbed salmon, anyone? Balsamic marinated medallions of beef with chipotle hollandaise?), valuable and unique silent auction items, and inspirational words. Guiding Eyes puppy raisers will again bring the popular puppy kissing booth back to the event.

But mostly, Peak Potential raises significant funds for our two benefactor organizations, Future in Sight (formerly The New Hampshire Association for the Blind) and Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Help us make this signature 2020 Vision Quest event a sellout success again this year by buying your tickets by Friday, October 27th.
