On Wednesday, May 13th at 6PM click the play button above, sit back, relax and enjoy our special program of popular music that will lift your spirits and touch your heart.

Our event was scheduled for May 13th on campus to support comprehensive eye exams and prescription glasses at no cost to underprivileged schoolchildren. Because of social distancing we are bringing the planned entertainment into your home.
