Excerpt from message from Pat Martin Bates, Honorary Chair
As the largest exhibit of art on the West Coast, the Eye Appeal is one of the most anticipated fundraisers on Vancouver Island and attracts hundreds of art lovers, collectors, and the media. Held this May 3, 2019 at the Crystal Garden, over 150 original pieces of art will be beautifully show cased and guests have the privilege of taking one home. Proceeds from the event provide special equipment and services for Vancouver Island residents who are blind or partially sighted, so that they can enjoy independent living. We, the artists, have provided the means for this major fundraising campaign by raising over one million dollars since 1997.
