About the Event

Join the Talking Information Center on Thursday, June 2nd, from 5-10pm at the Barker Tavern in Scituate for a night filled with dinner, dancing, fantastic auction items, a whole lot of gratitude, and hosted by the one and only Jordan Rich of WBZ! We are so excited to have the opportunity to be together in person once again and celebrate all that we've accomplished over the past two years. We hope you will join us! Can't attend? No worries! You can still participate in the silent auction- register now!

The Talking Information Center (TIC) is celebrating over 44 years of providing reading services for the blind and low vision community. With the help of over 200 volunteers, TIC broadcasts over 322 publications over our radio station each week so those living with low vision have access to the printed word. TIC provides a necessary service, not simply a "nice to have" service, as our programming provides listeners access to the same information sighted individuals have, which allows our listeners to live informed and autonomous lives.

TIC's programming also combats isolation by providing human-voiced broadcasts of publications. Isolation has been classified as one of the largest health risks in the world, especially for seniors over the age of 65. The need for our programming became more evident than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic as we saw our listenership triple as listeners looked for a way to combat loneliness.

Hosted by Jordan Rich. Music by Vicky Lynch & The Boston Renditions!

Thank you for supporting the Talking Information Center so we can continue to provide this vital service for another 44 years!
