What it takes to succeed!

Luigi Di Russo

Production supervisor, Luigi DiRusso, made it into the pages of National Industries for the Blind's summer issue of Opportunity Magazine! Luigi came to AVRE in 2010 and has been demonstrating his talents ever since! AVRE's greatest assets are its employees and we are thrilled to have Luigi's story of success and independence out there for everyone to read! Check out Luigi's story in Opportunity Magazine.


AVRE's Relay for Sight!

Steve Comency at the Relay for Sight

As part of AVRE's participation in the Wellpoint Foundation/USABA National Fitness Challenge, we hosted an agency-wide relay race event. Over 40 employees gathered to participate and cheer on co-workers as they dribbled basketballs, transported eggs on spoons, and skipped their way to the next person in line! Check out our Facebook page for more pictures and the names of the winning teams!


We serve people with vision disabilities in twelve counties - Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Schuyler, Tioga and Tompkins in New York and Bradford, Susquehanna and Tioga in Pennsylvania! If you or someone you know might benefit from our services, call us at

Nine at Night a Huge Success!

Nine at Night logoDespite a full day of rain, the evening of September 13th proved to be the perfect evening for some nighttime golf! Fifty-two golfers and more than forty volunteers gathered for the event at the Chenango Commons Golf Course. Feedback has been very positive and we are already planning for next year's tournament. Thanks to the sponsors and all of those involved, we raised over $11,000 to help support vision rehabilitation services throughout the Southern Tier!
