This event is Prevent Blindness Georgia’s newest event. The event features BBQ, games, and live music. This year’s band is Radio Sparks.

OphthOlympics

The event features an OphthOlympics or Vision Games which is a team-based, friendly competition for bragging rights in the vision world. The 2021 OphthOlympics involved competition in cornhole, soccer darts, hoop shooting, and the bolo ladder toss. This year’s list of competitive games have not yet been released but the cornhole competition will definitely be returning. If you would like to register a team, you can go online and register or call for more information 404-537-4985.

Fundraising

One way that teams are competing is through fundraising. An Olympic medal will be given to the team that raises the most funds for the vision programs of Prevent Blindness Georgia.
