A Feast for the Eyes
The CEI Foundation to Host A Feast for the Eyes November 30, 2017
Annual community outreach fundraiser will honor two CEI physicians as Leaders of Vision. An evening of inspiration, fine food and wine will be held Thursday, Nov. 30 at the fourth annual “A Feast for the Eyes” gala supporting The Cincinnati Eye Institute Foundation’s initiatives including community outreach. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Pavilion Room at the Cincinnati Hilton Netherland Plaza in downtown Cincinnati. Funds raised support Foundation initiatives that provide community outreach, education programs for eye care professionals and research support.
This year the Foundation will honor two physicians as its Leaders of Vision for their contributions to innovations in eye care, improved community health and enhanced quality of life for thousands of people in the community, said Patrick Ward, president of The CEI Foundation. Dr. Michael R. Peterson, Ph.D., of Wyoming, whose foresight led to the establishment of The CEI Foundation and served as its first president; and Dr. Hisham H. Arar of the West Side, medical director for The Foundation’s three, soon to be four, vision clinics for the under served, will be honored.
The evening’s entertainment will feature Tom Sullivan, a recording artist, composer, actor, author and producer, as well as skier, golfer, marathon runner and inductee into the Wrestling Hall of Fame in Oklahoma. Blind since birth, Sullivan will speak on the topic of living a life that accepts no limits. Sullivan’s best-selling book, If You Could See What I Hear, became a major motion picture in 1982. He composed and performed much of the music for the film.
