NEW YORK—Thirty of the optical industry’s best rock musicians and
singers will collaborate for the fourth annual EyeRock at The Hard Rock
in New York City’s Times Square on Saturday, March 19 from 9 p.m.
to 1 a.m. The concert will benefit OneSight, a non-profit organization
that delivers free vision care
The EyeRock Band performing last year’s at B.B. King’s in
and eyewear to
underprivileged individuals worldwide. Converse and John Varvatos by
REM Eyewear is returning as EyeRock’s presenting sponsor.
“This is the coolest, most fun event our industry puts together
each year,” said Mike Hundert, CEO of REM Eyewear, who called the
concert “a one of a kind” event. We’re thrilled to support it and the
wonderful good that comes from its success.”
To date, the other corporate sponsors are Combined Insurance,
Luxottica, Satisloh and Seiko. The Jobson Optical Group is the official
media sponsor. EyeRock sponsorship is a perfect way for companies to
showcase their support for OneSight while providing great add-on
entertainment in mid-town Manhattan for clients attending Vision Expo
East, according to the show’s organizers. Sponsors receive many
benefits, including complimentary tickets.
“The Hard Rock Café in Times Square is a vibrant new location for
EyeRock and we are expecting our biggest crowd ever,” said Greg Hare,
executive director of OneSight. “You won’t want to miss the chance to
see your industry colleagues perform at such a prestigious venue.”
