The Eye-Bank’s annual Fall Benefit ~ Bites for Sight on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association in Manhattan was a sold-out success! The room was abuzz as nearly 300 guests enjoyed sampling the small bite artisanal food representing a variety of cuisines from around the world expertly paired with premium wines, whiskeys, and some specialty mescal. All was topped off with wonderful gourmet sweets, also served as small bites of course.
This year’s silent auction was a hit once again with bids competing for hot ticket items such as two house seats (the best seats in the theater!) to Hamilton the Musical, tickets to the New York City Ballet, dinner for two at several exclusive restaurants, luxury box seats at major league sports events, wine tasting tours at Long Island wineries and more. Congratulations to all our lucky winners!
Thanks to our supporters, we are pleased to announce that the fundraising event surpassed our goal of $75,000!
A special thank you goes to the evening’s food, drink and sweets sponsors:
