ABOUT THE EYE BALL

The 2019 Eye Ball: See and Be Seen will be the most sought-after event ticket of the season because everyone who is anyone knows that It’s Fashionable to Care. Proceeds from the Eye Ball support programs that further the mission of the Lions Eye Institute and restore sight to individuals who cannot afford it.

Receiving the Light of Sight Award at the Eye Ball this year

will be Bradford and Bryan Manning, the co-founders of Two Blind Brothers, a cause-driven fashion company on a mission to cure blindness. At a young age, Bradford and Bryan Manning were both diagnosed with an eye disease that causes blindness over time. Today they make ultra-soft designer clothing from natural fibers for the sole purpose of funding blindness research. https://twoblindbrothers.com/

Upon arrival at the Eye Ball (and after you appease the paparazzi), you will be sorted into one of the four great fashion houses of the eye care world: Louis Vision, Oscar de la Retina, Perry Iris, or Versacheye. During this evening of glamour and extravagance, you and your team will compete to be the ultimate fashion house.

Winning points for your house will be easy, fashionable, and fun – all you must do is participate: Our sponsors will provide several interactive, fashion-themed stations for you to enjoy in the reception area. You will earn points by getting your picture taken with designers; buying raffle tickets, mystery boxes and beverages; winning live auction packages; and making donations!

The evening will culminate in a fashion show featuring visually impaired models, including Paralympic silver medalist, Tyler Merren and former Mrs. World and Mrs. America, April Lufriu; and many more inspiring individuals.

Join us to restore sight to individuals around the world!
