Somethings cooking at CCVI

This past Wednesday, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired in midtown Kansas City. I worked as a teachers aide there from the summer of 2002 to the summer of 2005. It was such a life changing experience, and one I will never forget! CCVI will forever hold a very special place in my heart!


The mission of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired, is to prepare children with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities, to reach their highest potential in the sighted world. CCVI is a place where disabilities become abilities. It's a place of acceptance and love, and gives children and their families a hope for their future.

Every year, CCVI is faced with the challenge to raise a large portion of their budget. Some of this is done through contracts with state and local school districts. Most of this is done through fundraisers such as the Sabates Eye Centers Trolley Run and other special events.

This spring, CCVI is planning a very special event, and while all the details are yet to be finalized, I can share this with you...
It will be delicious!
A few of the area's local chefs have agreed to help out with this event, and this past Wednesday, they came to visit CCVI and meet some of the children the schools serves.

Here are the Chefs who visited:

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
