EJ Scott’s charity, The Choroideremia Research Foundation has some upcoming fundraisers that you might want to try out. The charity can always use your support so why not have some fun while helping a worthwhile cause by attending one of their events.
These upcoming fundraisers have been organized by CRF Members:
The Purvis Brothers’ Driving Blind Documentary Premier 2 Brothers, 1 vision … 0 sight –
With the prospect of losing their vision entirely, Tod and Justin Purvis have decided there are so many people/places/things in this country that they would like to see. Since Choroideremia starts with the peripheral vision, the brothers have decided to start with the peripheral states of America.
They circumnavigated the contiguous United States, seeing the great sights that make America beautiful and sharing their story along the way. They documented their entire 13,000-mile journey across the country on film in the hopes of raising awareness of Choroideremia and other degenerative eye diseases.
Join us for the east coast premiere of Tod and Justin’s amazing feature documentary. Presented by the WilmFilm Festival, Penn Cinema Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware on April 27, 2013 at 4pm. Tickets are limited to 100 seats. Hurry! $50/ticket
Following the WilmFilm premiere of Driving Blind please join us at Ryan’s Wine (huge thanks to John Ryan!) for a tasting of some amazing wines. This will give us an opportunity to catch up, ask Tod and Justin Purvis a few questions, and spoil our taste buds with some big reds.
