With the passing of Elizabeth Taylor, the world lost not only a great actress but also a gracious and generous benefactor and philanthropist. Miss Taylor is well known for her work to fight HIV/AIDS, but less known for her contribution to Eye Care in developing countries.
As the International Eye Foundation celebrates its 50th Anniversary of Blindness Prevention and Sight Restoration worlwide, we look back with thanks to the support of Elizabeth Taylor over the years. We remeber when he hosted our 1977 "Eye Ball" gala with her then husband Senator John Warner. What a wonderful evening, she was magnanimous and magnificent!
