Kids Rock to buy glasses for children

Kids Rock for Vision will be holding its 11th Annual Concert fundraiser, on Saturday, March 23 from 5:00 pm -7:00 pm, at The Crossroads, a live music venue,  at 78 North Avenue, Garwood, N.J.

Sponsored and produced by the Chatham School of Rock, all proceeds will be donated to New Eyes for the Needy, to purchase new prescription eyeglasses for children living in the U.S.  Kids Rock has raised $66,000 for New Eyes since its inception.

“It’s hard to believe that these are local teenagers performing these songs,” said Jean Gajano, executive director of New Eyes, a not-for-profit. “They have incredible talent and wonderful stage presence.  They perform their own compositions and well-known hits, so it will be a great evening of music in a fun venue. New Eyes is so grateful for their continued assistance in helping us change the lives of children through the critical yet simple tool of eyeglasses.”

Kids Rock tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the door.  Just one ticket can help purchase a pair of glasses for a child in need.  

New Eyes, founded in 1932, purchases new prescription eyeglasses through a voucher program for children and adults in the U.S. who cannot afford glasses.  New Eyes also collects and redistributes donated glasses to the needy overseas in developing countries.
