On July 26, Eversight Illinois celebrated its 70th anniversary at The Peninsula Chicago with the “Seeing Stars” gala. The event, co-chaired by Candace Jordan and Michael Caputo/MyEyeDr., raised more than $50,000 for Eversight Illinois’ programs and services.

The mission of Eversight Illinois is “to restore sight and prevent blindness through the healing power of donation, transplantation and research.” In 2016, the nonprofit aided more than 3,000 corneal transplants around the world. Learn more about how you can get involved with the organization.
