Kings Set Record at Eyes of Hope Donation Night

By Seth Bohne

On Wednesday, the Sacramento Kings hosted a VSP Eyes of Hope Donation Drive and blew away previous records for eyeglass donations with a total of 2,110 people helped. Kings and VSP employees contributed hundreds of gently used eyeglasses throughout the preceding week, which was then significantly augmented by fan donations the night of the game.

This was the 5th VSP Eyes of Hope event hosted by the Kings and fans made the last drive night at Sleep Train Arena the best one yet! Even Slamson got into the fun by sporting his own eyeglasses during the game.

VSP Vision Care recently celebrated a big milestone of providing no-cost eye care and eyewear for 1 million people in need. The donations collected at the game will go towards continuing and expanding those efforts. Each pair of glasses will be donated to a global community in need, and for each pair donated, VSP will also provide a no-cost eye exam and new glasses for a local student in need.

Thank you Kings Fans for giving the gift of sight both locally and abroad!
