The Eye-Bank’s annual Fall Benefit ~ Bites for Sight II on Thursday, October 24, 2019, at the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association in Manhattan was a sold-out success! Nearly 300 guests enjoyed sampling specialty small bites representing a variety of cuisines from around the globe expertly paired with premium wines and scotch whiskies. For something sweet guests enjoyed artisanal sweets, also served as small bites in keeping with the evening’s theme.
This year’s silent auction was a highlight of the event with guests competing to outbid one another for exclusive items and experiences such as two house seats (the best seats in the theater!) to Hamilton the Musical, tickets to Late Night with Stephen Colbert Show, tickets to see Billy Joel at MSG, dinner for two at several exclusive restaurants, luxury box seats at all NYC’s major league sports events, wine tasting tours at Long Island wineries and more. Congratulations to all of our lucky winners!
Thanks to our supporters, we are pleased to announce that the fundraising event raised more than $84,000.00 and counting!
A special thank you goes to the evening’s food, drink and sweets sponsors:
