SVOSH at RSO lead the World Sight Day Challenge, Dinner in the Dark, which raised over $2500 to represent RSO in this year’s fundraiser. All proceeds went directly to Optometry Giving Sight (OGS). This is a nationwide event where RSO is competing with the other optometry schools to raise the most money!
This school-wide event had helping hands from Students, Faculty, Sponsors (UIWRSO Student government Association, NuVision, HOYA, and Marchon ), Student Org contributors (SVA, AOSA, SVOSH and LVR), Dr. Rai for representing OGS with her presentation, and Student Affairs (Mrs. Benne, Mrs. Macias and team).
There was a silent auction where attendees can write down their bid for donated items from sponsors.
LASIK procedure fromNuVision (valued at $5000)
4 pairs of sunglasses from Luxottica
Tickets were $10 for students, $15 for everyone else. Tickets include a salad, garlic bread, chicken parmesan (or pasta primavera for our vegetarians) dessert and drinks catered by Luciano’s Italian Ristorante. Meal will be served by RSO students, so all guests experienced a meal while wearing a blindfold to simulate the loss of sight.
