Santee Blind Fishing Event
An Unforgettable Experience
For 30 years blind and visually impaired Lowcountry residents have looked with eager anticipation to a special experience: the Santee Blind Fishing Event. Now managed by LVS, this memorable weekend is an all-inclusive over-night trip to Lake Marion including hotel accommodations, transportation, 3 meals, fishing supplies, and lake access by shore or boat for registered attendees who are blind or visually impaired and their caregivers.
For participants the Santee Blind Fishing Event is more than a weekend on the lake, it is an exciting change to a sometimes mundane routine and a chance to meet new people or reconnect with friends.
This event is the result of our shared commitment to improving vision health for all South Carolinians and to creating a healthier world where the blind and visually impaired know no limits.
Plans are underway to resume this event in April 2022 for the event’s 30th anniversary. Safety precautions will be made to accommodate public health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
