On March 3, 2012, the Polakoff Foundation is teaming up with Blind Industries & Services of Maryland (BISM) to hold A Mardi Gras Celebration at The Sheraton in Towson, Maryland. The event will feature dinner, dancing, live music from The Junkyard Saints, celebrity bartenders, and a silent auction.
The primary goal of this event is to raise money to help aid the fight against blindness. All proceeds from A Mardi Gras Celebration will be used by the Polakoff Foundation for: Training Services, Programs and Opportunities for Blind Individuals, Research, Free Screenings and Support in the Fight Against Glaucoma.
The Polakoff Foundation, founded in 2006, concentrates its fundraising efforts to assist those who can pursue breakthrough research in the quest for a glaucoma cure. They also provide assistance to organizations offering services related to the fight against glaucoma. These services include, but may not be limited to, free regional screenings in the Baltimore metro area as well as educational material to aid those who may be newly diagnosed or at risk.
The Polakoff Foundation maintains an all-volunteer staff. Their efforts depend on donations from corporations and caring individuals like you.
