ORLANDO, FL. (January 21, 2019)—Lighthouse Central Florida today named local businessman and former board member, Tom Langmann, chair of their 30th Annual Sight & Sole WalkFest, scheduled for Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs.
Langmann, who is a realtor with RE/MAX 200 Realty in Winter Park, has been involved with Lighthouse Central Florida for six years. He first learned about the work of Lighthouse after his wife was diagnosed with macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss for Americans age 50 and older. Langmann served on the board of directors from 2014-2017.
“Wow, what an honor,” said Tom Langmann. “This is an organization that is very close to my heart. I’m very excited to help make our community more aware of Lighthouse and the incredible work they do to empower our neighbors who live with vision loss. And my family is eager to help out as well.”
The chairman’s primary duties include helping to recruit community partners to participate in the Sight & Sole WalkFest. As one of Lighthouse’s largest community events, the WalkFest has evolved over the years from traditional “awareness walk” to a family friendly street festival.
The event is meant to raise funds and bring community awareness to the issues facing Central Florida’s community of blind and visually impaired.
Local businesses including restaurants and beverage distributors are all represented in the WalkFest’s vendor village. Past food vendors have included: La Femme Du Fromage, 4Rivers, The Coop, Bagel King, Outback Steakhouse, Hubbly Bubbly, Planet Smoothie and Jeremiah’s Italian Ice.
