The Better Vision for Children Foundation (BVC) has provided free comprehensive vision screening for underprivileged children to prevent and cure partial or total blindness resulting from, or related to, amblyopia (Lazy Eye), Autism and Eye Cancer for over 28 years. With the ambitious goal of making sure that every pre-school child has their eyes tested, and if necessary passed on to ophthalmologist and other professionals to receive the appropriate treatment or care, the BVC puts on events to raise funds strictly for detection, treatment, and education. With iconic supporters such as Stevie Wonder, and Larry King, and corporate sponsors like Wal-Mart, and IBM supporting them, the BVC has managed to raise awareness for vision impaired children around the world.

Between the great line-up, great venue, and the great foundation, this is an opportunity to give that you won’t be able to beat.
