With more than 250 in attendance, Helen Keller Services for the Blind held its 32nd Anniversary Sound & Light Gala at Steiner Studios’ Stage 6 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The organization honored individuals for their significant contributions to the community, including Brett Craig, president of Transitions Optical, and basketball hall of famer, community activist and inspirational writer Walt “Clyde” Frazier.
