Illinois

Eversight proudly partners with Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network, Lions Clubs, surgeons, businesses and philanthropists throughout Illinois to advance our mission.

We are honored to have worked with the families of 1,842 Illinois residents who gave the gift of sight for transplantation, research and education as cornea donors in 2019.

The Gift of Sight Masquerade

In 2019, hundreds joined us to honor philanthropist Sherry Lea Holson as Eversight’s 2019 Woman of Vision and surgeon David M. Lubeck, M.D., as our 2019 Gift of Sight honoree—and raise more than $175,000 at this exciting annual event to benefit our work.

The 2020 Gift of Sight Masquerade takes place October 20.

Our Illinois Auxiliary Board

Auxiliary board members are Chicago-area professionals ages 23-40 who help raise funds to benefit corneal transplantation and research through Eversight. Members organize and host an annual auxiliary fundraiser and ongoing initiatives such as “sweatworking” and after-hours events that do good and raise charitable support for Eversight. We currently have openings on the Auxiliary Board.
