Estate Gift Will Help Support Deaf-Blind Session at Enchanted Hills Camp for Years to Come

Jill Sprinkle and her husband were both Deaf-Blind. Beginning in 1995, Jill was a long-time enthusiastic participant at the LightHouse. Here she learned braille, Orientation and Mobility, and cooking. One of her great joys was attending Enchanted Hills Camp Deaf-Blind sessions. She told people that Enchanted Hills was her second home, and exulted in having a place that was safe and fun for deaf-blind people to be independent.

Last year Jill Sprinkle passed away. She gave a bequest of over $170,000 to support the Deaf-Blind session at Enchanted Hills – which we will leverage to provide the session for many years to come. Since 1950 more than 25,000 blind children, youth, adults and their families have enjoyed the unique capabilities of Enchanted Hills. The Lighthouse has been able to offer camperships at dramatically subsidized rates only because of gifts and bequests like those of the Jill Sprinkle’s.
