This was the first annual Summer Sight Soiree but it was the 13th annual spring event benefitting the Illinois Eye-Bank. The Peninsula was decorated beautifully by Tom Kehoe for this special evening honoring 2011 Woman of Vision, Jean Antoniou, and Gift of Sight Honoree Dr. Randy Epstein. The ballroom was filled with proud family and friends for this deserving pair of Eye-Bank supporters. Secretary of State Jesse White presented a custom license plate, "EYES", for the live auction and emcee was Ryan Baker. The Pen's Catering Director, Greg Hyder, lovingly introduced his long-time friend, Jean, for her honor while Event Chair, Dr. David Donnersberger, presented Dr. Randy Epstein with his Tiffany award. There were hugs all around as guests enjoyed the abundant food offerings, silent auction and music by Deep Blue Field. Congrats to Jean and Randy for these much deserved honors!
