KENILWORTH, N.J. – Join Eversight New Jersey in celebrating 45 years of making vision a reality at our annual Night for Sight fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 19.
The event is about more than our long history of restoring sight to people in need, it is also a celebration of our many partners who help us give the gift of sight each day. The evening’s honorees include the NJ Sharing Network and Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley (LEBDV).
“Newborns, students, parents, retirees – the range of people in our communities who need cornea transplants is staggering,” said Margaret Chaplin, Executive Director of Eversight New Jersey. “Eversight New Jersey and our partners, the NJ Sharing Network and LEBDV, have a common mission to provide the critical services that make sight-restoring transplants possible for people in need.”
Attendees will enjoy a delicious dinner, drinks, and a special presentation by Eversight Director of Research Programs Gregory Grossman, Ph.D., introducing a groundbreaking research program and how Eversight is changing the future of sight restoration. Proceeds from the event will support Eversight charitable programs, which make transplants possible for more than 500 New Jersey residents each year.
