Indigo's Vision of the Future

Indigo Salon and Spa is graciously hosted a fundraising event for VOC. There was local art, a fashion show, and a silent auction. Hor d'oeuvres and desserts were provided by local restaurants. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Indigo to raise support and awareness for VOC. All donations from this event supported The Vision of Children Foundation.

Race for Sight

Nearly 100 participants maneuvered and raced high-speed GO-Karts around gut-wrenching twists and turns as part of a fundraiser for three vision-related organizations. The event, called Race for Sight, benefited Vision of Children, the Delta Gamma Foundation, and the Braille Institute (San Diego) — all charities that fund vision-related research or services.
