Usher syndrome is the most common cause of deafblindness in the United States. It is a combination of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and some level of hearing loss. There are about 10-15,000 people with Usher syndrome in the United States today. We are a 501(c)3 not for profit organization in search of funds to sustain the fight against Usher syndrome. Please help us make a difference by supporting us in our fundraising efforts for preventing, treating and curing Usher syndrome.
Thanks to everyone who attended our 2017 Sensation Dining in the Dark event on Thursday, May 11, 2017. It was a blast! Hosted at the Palace Ballroom, famous venue of renown Seattle Chef Tom Douglas, guests were treated to a five-course wine-paired meal while blindfolded. Sensation is designed to help raise awareness about Usher Syndrome, the leading cause of deafblindness.
