YORKTOWN, N.Y. – An apparent error in a financial report could cost Yorktown-based Guiding Eyes for the Blind $525,000, according to a report in The Journal News.
Guiding Eyes has recently filed legal papers that ask the state Supreme Court to intervene in a dispute with the Ethel S. Abbott Charitable Foundation over a cash endowment, which was intended to generate income for the charity, the Journal News said.
According to the report, the lawsuit says that Guiding Eyes sent an erroneous financial report last year to the Lincoln, Neb.-based Abbott foundation. Now, the group has accused Guiding Eyes of violating the agreement and has requested a return of the $525,000, the Journal News report said.
Guiding Eyes is asking the court to declare that its mistake did not violate the agreement and to rule that the guide-dog training charity can keep the money.
