Gift of Sight Masquerade: Circus of Dreams
September 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm$300
This spectacular event is Eversight’s largest annual fundraiser supporting cornea transplantation, research, surgeon education and the Gift of Sight program. Support from this event last year allowed Eversight to serve a record-breaking number of transplant recipients and donor families. In 2021, 2,250 donor families in Illinois gave the gift of sight, and 1,300 Illinois residents received a cornea transplant. In 2021, thanks to the support of Warby Parker, BMO Harris and others, the Gift of Sight Masquerade raised nearly $150,000 for sight restoration.
This year’s Gift of Sight Masquerade: Circus of Dreams, will take place at one of Chicago’s premier hotels, The Peninsula Chicago. Appropriate social distancing will be made possible with grand indoor and outdoor spaces overlooking The Magnificent Mile. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by an impactful program and seated dinner, concluding around 10:30 p.m.
