Proceeds benefit the Gallatin club’s “Journey For Site Foundation” and its sight preservation programs. Each year, Lions Club members go into area day-care, mother’s-day- out programs and – armed with a special camera – photograph the eyes of the youngster for free.
The photos are then forwarded to the Lions Eye Institute at Vanderbilt’s Monroe Carroll Children’s Hospital in Nashville. There, eye specialists examine each photograph and advise the parents if their child has a vision issue.
