Are you ready to celebrate Christmas, or the winter solstice and the return of lighter days? As a valued patient of The Eye Center, we would like to cordially invite you and your family or friends to attend the Night For Light benefit concert!

The date of the event is Friday, December 22nd from 7-9PM and the venue will be the new and improved Shedd Institute. This concert is FREE and will feature two fantastic musical acts – the Strange Desserts (featuring Dr. Haines) and The Good Time Travelers!


Dr. Haines and the Strange Desserts

General Admission seats in the balcony are free!
Yepp, you read correctly. Seats in the balcony area for this event are free! This is our way of thanking the community for its highly engaged involvement in helping us return the gift of sight to the medically underserved around the world. Please reserve only the tickets that you are sure to use for the concert. A waiting list will be generated after 350 seats are given away.

Reserved tables on the ground floor available for sponsors
Reserved seating on the ground floor is available for sponsors of this event. Reserved tables are closest to the stage and seat 4-people each. During the show, sponsors will be named and given a very special ‘thank you’. The donation requested for each sponsored table is $500. This donation is fully tax deductible and almost 100% of the proceeds will go towards giving the medically underserved the gift of sight.
