Subject: The Seeing Eye to Ring Opening Bell at NYSE

President and CEO of The Seeing Eye Jim Kutsch, with Seeing Eye® dog Colby at his side, will ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, January 6, ringing in a year-long celebration of the school's 80th anniversary.

Founded in Nashville on January 29, 1929, the oldest existing school to train dog guides expects to match its 15,000th dog with a blind person sometime during the anniversary year. The organization moved to Morris County, N.J., in 1931 and has been in its current location, just outside Morristown, since 1964.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to ring the opening bell," said Kutsch. "Since its beginning, The Seeing Eye has relied on the financial support of many of the corporations represented within the stock exchange. And many executives of those corporations have supported us – and continue to support us – both financially and as members of our Board of Trustees. Philanthropic organizations like The Seeing Eye would not exist without the support of corporate America."

The event can be viewed live on CNBC television at 9:30 a.m. (ET) or online at http://www.nyse.com/attachment/liveflashbell.htm. The archived video will be available by finding The Seeing Eye's event page on http://www.nyse.com/events/Cal_1194896449734.html beginning 30 minutes after the event. 

The visit to Wall Street will be the first of numerous celebrations taking place throughout 2009. Among those events will be a reunion of current Seeing Eye dog users, dedication of a historic marker at the school's original Nashville location, and a number of regional fundraising events across the United States and Canada.

We hope you'll find the opportunity to celebrate with us!
