In 2007, the Bonita Springs Lions Club made a commitment to open an eye clinic to care for the indigent. The clinic serves 2000 clients yearly providing free eye care from minor surgeries to glasses. Proceeds from the eyeball Soirée, will continue to serve the people of Southwest Florida and beyond. Many eye physicians donate their time to the clinic. This year two physicians will be receiving awards for the volunteerism and commitment to the clinic the night of the gala.
