Join UAB School of Optometry students at noon Thursday, Oct. 10, for a “Picnic for World Sight,” where guests can buy Taziki’s Cafe lunches with a drink for $5 on the plaza between the Henry Peters Building and Lister Hill Public Library. Baked goods will also be sold.
In addition to the meal and bake sale, there will be activities including a blindfolded taste test, and the winner of the 22nd annual Varilux Optometry Student Bowl, David Zimmerman, will be awarded his crystal trophy.
Money raised will go to Optometry Cares, a foundation of the American Optometric Association that works to expand eye health and vision care access to everyone in the United States.
This event is open to the public. The “Picnic for World Sight” is sponsored by Essilor.
