is partnering with Visual Eyes Eyewear to mark the 10th Anniversary of Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) , a cancer research and awareness organization. “Organizations like Stand Up To Cancer improve the millions of lives impacted by cancer,” said Michael Bender, Eyemart Express chief executive officer. “We are privileged to honor a decade of their hard work funding cancer research, so cancer patients can become cancer survivors. There is still a long road to discover a cure, but we are eager to continue to do our part to bolster this organization and spread the word by involving our customers.”
Eyemart Express and its family of brands will donate five dollars for every pair of SU2C glasses or frames purchased at all stores nationwide through Sept. 9, 2018 with a $25,000 minimum guaranteed donation. The SU2C collection
was created in collaboration with Visual Eyes Eyewear.
Eyemart Express and Visual Eyes Eyewear have donated more than $187,800 to support SU2C’s mission over the course of their partnership.
“We are very grateful for our strong relationship with Eyemart Express,” said SU2C president and chief executive officer Sung Poblete, Ph.D., R.N. “We are able to accomplish all that our organization does thanks to the generosity of the company and its customers.”
Bender added, “Cancer is a disease that touches nearly everyone in some capacity. Contributing to the fight any way you can, such as purchasing SU2C collection glasses, goes a long way.”
