RENO, NEV, Dec. 3, 2012 — The Reno Bighorns have once again teamed up with Eyezone and team optometrist Dr. Daniel Rowan to host “Bighorns Day at Eyezone” on Sunday, December 9th. This event is open to the public and will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Eyezone, located at 4796 Caughlin Parkway in Reno.

Bighorns players, Lady Bighorns and Bruno will be on hand to help kids pick out glasses, sign autographs and take pictures. Bighorns players will be at Eyezone from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

“This community holds a special place in our hearts around here and we are proud to partner with organizations like the Reno Bighorns to give back, especially this time of year,” said Dr. Rowan. “The kids will have a great time with Bruno and all the players, and we will be able to help them with the gift of sight at the same time."

Anyone wishing to reserve a spot is encouraged to call early, as space is limited. Dr. Rowan and the Eyezone staff will also have a special offer that fans can use in the future for their eye care.

"Having needed glasses since I was in fourth grade, I know firsthand just how important it is to have corrective lenses that allow you to see the world," said Reno Bighorns owner, Herb Santos, Jr. "The wonderful gift that Dr. Rowan and his exceptional staff will be providing to children in need is a great example of a leader who is making a difference and making our community a better place to live. I hope that if you see Dr. Rowan out and about town, that you take a moment and thank him for his great contribution."
