The route is approximately 50 miles long starting from CABVI’s Headquarters up through the Ilion Gorge and ends at Harts Hill Inn, where the motorcycle enthusiasts will join the automobile enthusiasts by viewing a collection of unique display of vehicles.

Barton Rasmus, event chair and member of both the C.A.B. Foundation and CABVI boards of directors, will again be inviting owners of automobiles who have showcased their all-award winning vehicles in numerous, high-end car shows and events all over the country.
All proceeds from the event will support programs and services for people who are blind or visually impaired through the Central Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CABVI).
CABVI is a not-for-profit agency that serves people who are blind or visually impaired, from newborns to the elderly, generally free of charge. The staff of professionals offers comprehensive vision rehabilitation, employment, and technology services personally tailored to meet an individual’s needs.
“Since 1986, the Vehicles for Vision program has raised money, primarily from donated autos, trucks, boats and real estate, to support the vision rehabilitation programs of CABVI,” said Hon. Michael Misiaszek, Chair of the C.A.B. Foundation Board of Directors, the governing of Vehicles for Vision and its sister program, Valuables for Vision. “We hope to gain more exposure for the good work of CABVI while, at the same time, promoting Vehicles and Valuables for Vision.”
