Hello everyone! Our 1st benefit concert is in the books, where we had a tremendous night at the SOLD OUT “Dead Zeppelin Allman Bros Tribute for the the Foundation Fighting Blindness“! I had the honor of organizing this event that took place on Saturday November 11th. What I learned as much as anything, is that the team of people involved was the key to making this such a special night! At the end of this, I once again list some of the people that we give thanks to for making this happen. As many of you know, I’ve always been passionate about live music. Over the course of my 23 years of service in eyecare, one of my dreams was to organize a benefit concert for a great cause within the field. We wound up raising over $3,000 for the Foundation Fighting Blindness! Philly’s Steal Your Peach started off the evening with a Grateful Dead / Allman Bros themed set, & they were awesome! Hometown heroes, Electric Love Machine followed with a Led Zeppelin themed set, where they mixed it up with some spectacular originals! We had lighting designer Jack Thomas put on a light show as good as I’ve ever seen at the 8×10! The show sold out ahead too! Danny Kaplan wound up winning the Maui Jim Sunglass promotion, where it was fun to see his excitement on winning, supporting a great cause, and catching the live performance! The Foundation Fighting Blindness’s national headquarters is based in Columbia Maryland. They were founded in 1971, with a mission to drive research providing preventions, treatments & cures for people affected by blinding retinal diseases. If you did or didn’t make this event, but want to support a great cause, please click here on our Professional Vision Timonium & Carney team donation page www.fightblindness.org/ProfessionalVisionTeam to contribute to the Foundation Fighting Blindness. We’d like to give a big thanks to: The 8×10, Electric Love Machine, Missiontix, Steal Your Peach, Depth Perception, Brad & Tricia Selko & Hot August Music Festival, Bausch & Lomb, WTMD, Maui Jim, Ed Early Printing, Paul Manna & 24-7 Entertainment, Kenny Liner & Believe in Music, Chip Watkins, ZEISS, Dave Rather & Mother’s Grille, Matsuri Restaurant, ABB Optical Group, Ben Greenwald, DR.
