Solomon Schechter Fundraising Art Auction | Long Island Eye Doctor
Here at Optix we are all about giving back to the community. We want to make the area a better place to live for its residents.
So when The Solomon Schechter Day School/Solomon Schechter High School of Long Island came in to tell us about their fundraiser program we where quick to get involved.
Solomon Schechter of Long Island is a non-profit Jewish day school serving Long Island for quite some time. They currently have over 550 students enrolled in grades K – 12.
The Solomon Schechter Schools of Long Island’s rich heritage is the result of the dream of a few special people. In the days when Nassau County lacked an educational center for Conservative Judaism, a dedicated group of families had a vision, took a chance and started a day school in 1967. The original home of this small, but vibrant and quickly growing school was Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn.
Like any organization, Solomon Schechter needs money.
On January 31st, 2009, the Parents’ Association is holding their third annual Fundraising Art Auction. This wonderful event is fully supported by everyone here at Optix and we felt it necessary to help out the students of Solomon Schechter by donating eyewear for their auction.
On Monday, January 5th we gave Solomon Schechter roughly $400 of merchandise to help in their efforts. This included 2 pairs of Michael Kors sunglasses and various cleaning supplies to care for these sunglasses.
Through the years, OPTIX has donated thousands of dollars in cash and eyewear to various charities and organizations, including Lions Club, Local PTA’s, Churches, Synagogues, YMCA’s and Schools.
We look forward to giving back to the community in the future.
