RB EYE Foundation Donates $40,000 to Child Vision Center
The RB EYE Foundation has donated $40,000 to the Child Vision Center of Fort Worth as a result of our 2015 Fundraiser, An Afternoon in the Outfield featuring Texas Rangers Hall of Famer Pudge Rodriguez. The event was held in August at Globe Life Ballpark and featured a charity auction, great food and drink, and an afternoon of Texas Rangers baseball. The donation helps fund equipment purchases and operations at CVC, a world-class vision clinic located in Fort Worth.
The RB EYE Foundation was created in 2011 by Jim and Kami Schlossnagle with a mission of raising community awareness and support for patient care, diagnostic testing, and medical research pertaining to vision-threatening disease in children, including Leber Congential Amaurosis (LCA), and to supporting other related and/or worthy charitable causes.
Leveraging his passion and position as head baseball coach at Texas Christian University, Jim Schlossnagle along with his wife Kami, started the RB Eye Foundation to help positively impact local children who face the uncertainty of life-changing and vision-altering pediatric eye diseases and conditions.
The RB Eye Foundation works in partnership with and financially supports the Child Vision Center of Fort Worth. Conceived and founded by the physicians of Pediatric Eye Specialists, the Child Vision Center is an innovative, nonprofit research and diagnostic center led by our team of pediatric ophthalmologists and ophthalmology specialist designed to create a world-class diagnostic and research center in order to provide care to all children who need it.
