Calling all of those with albinism in Chicago!

The Vision of Tomorrow is a foundation that works to fund albinism research as well as support the albinism and low vision community in other ways. They've been a supporter of the HPS Network, for example. They have an upcoming family event/fundraiser in the Chicago area. It sounds like a lot of fun! Here's the e-mail I was sent yesterday.

Dear Friends:

As many of you know, we are the founders of the Vision for Tomorrow Foundation. Our daughter, Tess, is visually impaired. We started this foundation to better the lives of those with low vision through research, education and public awareness.

Attached is the invitation to our first big event! This is a 2-day event – August 23rd and 24th. There will be a 3-on-3 basketball tournament (Saturday all day and Sunday morning) and a Family Carnival (Sunday 1-4 p.m.) There are a lot of details but please note the following: Tournament players will be bracketed with appropriate age groups and 6-8th graders will ONLY play on Sunday. Tournament registrants will be notified of their playing times via email during the week of August 18th.

We have also attached a registration form which you can print, fill out and mail in. If you prefer to register online, a form is available on our web site – Please register soon as space is limited!!

Again, thank you so much for your continued support. We look forward to playing basketball, dancing, and celebrating with you in August!
