As planning for the 30th Great Tucson Beer Festival in Tucson is well underway, I will share photos from the event last October. This fundraising event is put on each year by the Tucson chapter of Sun Sounds of Arizona. They are an organization that has been around since 1979. They provide audio access to print media (newspapers, magazines, books, etc.) to people in the Southwest who cannot read print because they have a disability. The services are crucial to helping people keep up with current events and continue pursuing their goals and dreams.
This cause is near and dear to my heart because my wife has visual impairment. She knew how to read braille when she was young and used audio assistance to get through college. Fortunately her condition hasn’t degraded enough to inhibit her day-to-day activities.
My wife often jokes that my longest client since living in Tucson, the Beer Festival organizer, has never seen one of my photos! I am guessing others have told her I do a decent job.
