2nd Annual Night for Sight Gala Fundraiser!
Support and connect with us during an evening of fundraising for our sight-saving programs with a silent auction, music, cocktails, and dinner. During the evening, we are pleased to announce, we will also honor the 2018 Prevent Blindness Georgia Person of Vision whose enlightened leadership and vision of “medical excellence” make Georgia a better place to live.
Last year, through the generosity and support of patrons, sponsors, and donors, the funds raised helped us vision screen 11,150 children and provide 22 adult vision clinics.
Thank you so much for your generosity and consideration of support!
The Prevent Blindness Georgia Person of Vision Award honors an invaluable individual who emulates excellence in the eye care community through their patient care, professional integrity, and industry standards, creating a better vision for all of us. The Person of Vision’s distinctive leadership reflects a vision of “medical superiority” whose profound impact makes Georgia a better place to live.
