On Tuesday, October 3rd, The Eye-Bank hosted our first ever Fall Benefit ~ A Wine, Whiskey and Sweets tasting at the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association in Manhattan. Approximately 200 guests enjoyed raising a glass while raising funds for The Eye-Bank’s mission of restoring sight. Fine wines and flights of exceptional whiskeys were enjoyed along with a buffet of seasonal pairings and an assortment of gourmet sweets.
The silent auction was another highlight of the evening with items such as two house seats (the best seats in the house!) to Hamilton the Musical, an in-home wine tasting with one of the country’s leading sommeliers, dinner for two at several exclusive restaurants in New York, major league sports tickets, spa packages and more. Congratulations to all of our winners!
We are pleased to announce that the event raised more than $50,000 ..and counting!
