Rotary Club of Sandy Springs Wine Tasting supporting Vision To Learn

Please join us Sunday, November 13 from 3-5 PM for the Rotary Club of Sandy Springs wine tasting event at the Brooklyn Café. The event will raise funds to support an important Rotary Vision To Learn project for our community.

Did you know… about one in five kids will naturally need glasses to see the board, read a book, or participate in class. Unfortunately, in underserved communities across the country, 95% of kids who need glasses, about 2,000,000 in total, do not have them. What chance does each of these children have to succeed in school, let alone break free from poverty? Vision To Learn was founded to make sure every child has the glasses he or she needs to succeed in school and in life. Its mobile clinics solve the problem by bringing eye exams and glasses, free of charge, to children at schools in underserved communities. 

Let’s make sure our Sandy Springs children have the glasses they need to learn well. Check out this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKLHDe67fwc. Our goal is to provide more than 1000 pair of eyeglasses to our elementary schools: Ison Springs, Dunwoody Springs, Lake Forest and Spalding Drive. Please come out to support Rotary’s Vision To Learn project and enjoy top selling wines for a great cause. Meet up with your Sandy Springs friends and folks who will become friends, taste lots of good wine and purchase the wines you like for less than the retail price. A special thanks to Jeff Trump, owner of the Brooklyn Café, for his willingness to open up his restaurant to enjoy wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres for our Vision Project.
