Art Bookbinder passed away on April 1, 2020. Art will be dearly missed by all of us at Lighthouse of Collier. From the origin of the Lighthouse of Collier in 2009, he was a friend, coach, cheerleader, board member & financial supporter. One of our board members said it best. “He was a blind man that taught us how to see”.
