Last night Real Kids Shades had the pleasure of hosting a dinner for the families of the three finalists in the Most Beautiful Eyes contest. The contest is presented by Prevent Blindness America and Real Kids Shades is a sponsor.
Our finalists were all so cute and ranged in age from 2 to 8 years old. Families came from Maine, South Carolina and Oklahoma so it was an exciting trip for everyone. We took the kids to the Rainforest Cafe in Chicago, which was a first for all of them. It was the perfect place for them to all make friends and check out the local wildlife! The waterfall and giant alligator were the evenings most popular attactions. The kids were treated to dinner and had a wonderful night. Of course, we had a great time getting to know them as well.
Here are some photos from our dinner with the contest finalists and their families:
All three finalists will receive scholarships from Prevent Blindness America. The winner of the contest will receive a a $25,000 college scholarship and for one year, will be the face of the “Star Pupils” program, the national children’s eye health and safety program from Prevent Blindness America. The second prize winner will receive a $4,000 scholarship, with a $2,000 scholarship for the third place winner.
We will find out who the contest winner is tonight at a gala dinner. Come visit us next week when we share more about the event.
