Advance Eye Care Center, Optometrists RAISES AWARD-WINNING AMOUNTS FOR EYE CHARITY
Trusted Regina partners and Regina optometrists, Drs. Myles Bokinac and Rhea Anderson and the staff members of Advance Eye Care Center have been acknowledged by Optometry Giving Sight as Bronze award level fundraisers, thanks to their efforts during the 2012 World Sight Day Challenge.
Drs. Bokinac and Anderson and practice staff raised funds during the month of October 2012 by donating proceeds of eye exam fees and fundraising donations from the practice patients. This money will be used to support sustainable eye care projects in underserved communities around the world, helping people who are needlessly blind and in urgent need of eye care. “We are very excited to have received a Bronze award. Since our Eye Health Month Fundraiser, we have opened two new locations and for next year plan to expand our fundraising efforts to both our Lumsden and Grenfell offices to help support this worthy cause.” said Dr. Bokinac. “I have supported Optometry Giving Sight for 5years and am proud to donate to such a worthwhile cause. The World Sight Day Challenge is a great way to help support the millions of people who don’t have access to the basic eye care that we can take for granted.”
Optometry Giving Sight is committed to supporting programs that focus on training local eye care professionals so that in time, people in need will have access to sustainable eye care from within their own community. A recent beneficiary of one of these projects is Samuel Chagwadira, who graduated in 2012 to become one of Malawi’s first ever optometrists. He said it was a dream come true. “To be part of the first group of graduate optometrists in Malawi feels great,” he said. “It is history in the making; we’ve written history!”
Optometry Giving Sight guarantees that 85 percent of all funds raised by optometrists and their patients go directly to supporting programs that give sight to those most in need. For more information about Optometry Giving Sight, visit www.givingsight.org
