OrbiTouch to hold event benefitting wounded veterans
Makers of disability keyboard encourage community to come out, support
The event, titled Red, White, and Blue Orb, will be held at Swanson’s Ivanhoe Row, located on beautiful Lake Ivanhoe in Downtown Orlando. Catered barbeque by local favorite 4Rivers Smokehouse will be provided. So far, 4Rivers’ award winning beef brisket is on the menu, as is pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, and corn.
Says Director of Social Media Elizabeth Rissman, “We invite the community to come out, have a couple of drinks, and eat some good food for a great cause. We make a great piece of technology that has the potential to help a lot of people, and supporting wounded veterans by providing the technology they need to effectively transition to civilian life after they come home is a huge deal to us.”
Suggested donation to attend the event is $25, and all proceeds will be donated to the Orlando VA Medical Center. Veterans, however, are welcomed to attend this event for free.

Located in Orlando, Florida, orbiTouch's goal is to help people with special needs communicate. We make an ergonomic keyboard that requires no hand or wrist motion to operate. It helps those who experience limited mobility in their hands, such as people with carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, cerebral palsy, autism, low vision or blindness, and an array of other physiological and cognitive challenges.
