Join us for the Armenian EyeCare Project’s Annual Gala Celebration on Saturday November 17, 2018 at 6:30 in the evening in Newport Beach, California as we celebrate over 25 years of “Bringing Sight to Armenian Eyes.”
The evening will start with a cocktail reception and silent auction as guests enjoy live piano music by Robert Duquenel; roving entertainers including storytellers and Cirque du Soleil-inspired artists; and sumptuous hors d’oeuvres. As they greet new and old friends, guests will be able to bid on donated items that will include a trip to Armenia, a romantic weekend at the Balboa Bay Resort along with stays in Palm Desert and Las Vegas, certificates to some of the best restaurants in southern California, wine, brandy and much more!
As the ballroom doors are opened, guests will enjoy flowing wine and a delicious Mediterranean-inspired meal served over five courses while they listen to beautiful Armenian music performed live by an Armenian band; watch exciting Armenian dance performances by Artur Aleksanyan and his talented Dance Troupe; and participate in a thrilling Live Auction with a chance to win some phenomenal, big-ticket items.
All proceeds from our upcoming Gala will benefit the EyeCare Project’s many programs in Armenia, which include five Regional Eye Clinics, a Mobile Eye Hospital, a Center of Excellence for the Prevention of Infant and Childhood Blindness, an eyeglass distribution program, subspecialty clinics, a number of medical education and training programs and more.
Please join us for a wonderful evening! Your attendance will help us in our mission to eliminate preventable blindness in Armenia and provide access to quality eye care for every adult and child in the country. Together, we can restore or save the sight of Armenians in need!
