Second Annual 'Eye Ball' Fights Juvenile Diabetes, Says Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology
Date:10/17/2008

Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology hosts event October 24 benefiting Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; Tom Sullivan headlines event

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oklahoma Academy of Ophthalmology (OAO) hosts the second annual "Eye Ball," benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Central Oklahoma Chapter.

Actor, singer, author and producer Tom Sullivan will headline the event. Lorena and Gary Story of Oklahoma City are the honorary chairs.

The black-tie-optional gala will be held Friday, October 24 at Gaillardia Country Club in Oklahoma City. The event will feature drinks, a seated dinner, great conversation, and -- thanks to the generous support of Allergan, Inc. -- a keynote address by Mr. Sullivan.

"We are extremely excited about this year's Eye Ball," said OAO president Amalia Miranda, an ophthalmologist in Oklahoma City. "The inaugural event last year was terrific and it is an inspiration to hear Tom Sullivan speak."

The event is open to members of the general public who RSVP in advance. Tickets and sponsorship levels are $150 and up.

Juvenile (Type 1) diabetes is a disease which strikes children suddenly and requires multiple injections of insulin daily or a continuous infusion of insulin through a pump. Insulin, however, is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.

For more information on the event or to RSVP, please visit the Eye Ball website at http://www.OklahomaEyeBall.com.
