Eye Want You at This Event

2007_01_eyewant.gifTrendy eyewear store Eye Want in Wicker Park (err ... what other eye center also offers tattooing services!?) is pairing up with the Lions of Illinois to raise funds for cutting edge research at the Lions Eye Research Institute at UIC. This event takes place on Saturday, February 17, from 6:30 - 10:00 p.m.

If you go, you'll get free drinks, hor d'oeurves, and sweets. There will also be a Charity Art Auction that will feature 2 dozen works of art specially commissioned for that night and donated by artists, some local and some internationally known. Even better, Eye Want is donating 20% of all sales during that entire day directly to the cause, so if you're in need of a checkup, schedule an exam that day!

Eye Want is located at 1543 N. Milwaukee Avenue.
