Eyeland of St. Johns sponsored Rory fundraiser
Nikki Earich, owner of Eyeland of St. Johns, became involved with the eyeglass business because her father was an optometrist and needed a high-end eyeglass supplier. Over the years, her business grew from one store to twelve stores. Each store identifies itself with, and works for, a particular charity. “When it came time for us to decide on our charity, it was an easy decision,” said Nikki. “The Rory David Deutsch Foundation.” Nikki decided to pursue her support in a big way. The fundraiser, “An Evening of Artwork and Eyewear,” held on February 19, was an open house that featured original artwork by Susie and Mitch Levin of High Voltage Studio, a Trunk Show featuring electrifying eyewear from Lafont, and refreshments. A portion of all sales from the evening was donated to The Foundation. The open house was so successful, that Nikki decided to extend the fund-raising period for another six weeks. Again, for that extended period, a portion of all sales went to The Rory David Deutsch Foundation. As a result, Eyeland of St. Johns graciously wrote The Foundation a check for $3,200.
