Jazzed About Sight 2022
On Tuesday, October 18th, 2022, The Bohemian Hall on the Upper East Side was filled with excitement as generous friends and supporters gathered to enjoy an elegant evening while raising funds for Eye-Bank programs.
The night began with autumn cocktails followed by a three course Italian dinner, presented by celebrated Chef Michele Mazza of Il Mulino Restaurants. After dinner, guests enjoyed wonderful desserts provided by Board treasurer Umber Ahmad's bakery, Mah-Ze Dahr. The highlight of the evening was an intimate performance by world-renowned jazz guitarist and vocalist John Pizzarelli, who charmed the crowd with both his musical virtuosity and personal stories about meeting and performing with icons of American music. The evening ended on a high note as on-site contributions pushed The Eye-Bank beyond our ambitious $100,000 fundraising goal, achieving a record-breaking $107,000 for our sight-saving mission!
A special thank you goes to event Co-Chairs David Adler and Dr. Himani Goyal, our Benefit Committee members, the many generous sponsors and, of course, the many Eye-Bank staff who worked the event. Your contributions made the annual Fall Benefit a resounding success!
