THE EYE BALL is a signature fundraising gala dinner and auction held in conjunction with the VisionSave campaign.
An annual affair since 2011, THE EYE BALL plays a significant role in making VisionSave initiatives into realities. In 2017, the event contributed S$623,000 out of the S$1.5 million worth of funds collected for the year.
However, we are still a distance away from reaching our target of S$25 million by 2020 – and your participation in THE EYE BALL will go a long way in helping us do so.
By being a part of THE EYE BALL, you will be able to network with key individuals in Singapore’s philanthropic, medical and entertainment industries; hear from grateful patients on how your donations have changed their lives; and participate in the charity auctions while contributing towards a good cause.
Besides the dinner and charity auctions, guests at THE EYE BALL will also be able to enjoy an array of dazzling performances by renowned local entertainers, as well as recognise the contributions of Singaporeans who have made strides in improving eye health through our awards ceremonies.
Funds gathered from THE EYE BALL will go towards supporting VisionSave’s five causes, namely:
Educate people in the areas of saving sight
Develop long-term understanding of eye diseases and solutions
Support research and innovation in the field of ophthalmology
Build strong infrastructure and invest in capacity building
Your support for THE EYE BALL enables us to continue our efforts in bettering our patients’ quality of life and advancing eye health innovation in Singapore
