Benefiting the Center for the Visually Impaired

6:00 p.m. at The Buckhead Theatre
The Center for the Visually Impaired (CVI) is excited to host this year's True Blue Do on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at The Buckhead Theater located at 3110 Roswell Road, Atlanta. The event will be from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $125 per person.
CVI’s True Blue Do is a fun event whose proceeds give hope to thousands of Georgians with vision loss and their families. With nearly 400 attendees each year, it’s a true party with a purpose. Funds raised through the event support CVI’s life changing services and programs for those impacted by vision loss. Susan and Frank Virgin are Honorary Chairs of this year’s True Blue Do, recognizing their many years of dedicated service to CVI.
Guests will enjoy a casual evening featuring great food, cocktails, silent and live auctions and the opportunity to “Flip for a Trip” to win airline tickets. This year’s True Blue Do will feature live music from the world’s only known band composed of eye doctors and their musically acclaimed patients! Performing together for one night only, The Macular Degenerates – ophthalmologists Stephen Hamilton MD (drums) and J. Michael Roach, MD (bass) – will be joined by special guests The HIPAA Violators – patients Sanders Raysin (guitar), Billy Reid (sax), and the sensational Margie Joseph, 1970s R&B chart-topping soul and funk singer extraordinaire. CVI volunteer Kendall Simpson rounds out the band on keyboard.
CVI is the only nonprofit organization in Georgia that provides vision rehabilitation services and support to people of all ages. Our clients’ visual conditions range from low vision to total blindness, and services offered are never based on their ability to pay. As such, funds raised at the True Blue Do are crucial to ensure that CVI can help all those in need.
