There will be a DJ spinning your favorite groovy 70’s platters along with current hits. There will even be a scavenger hunt to keep things rockin’ until the famous (read, infamous) hospitality suite opens and the drinks start flowing to wash down the “mid-night” pizza.

Opticians Spotlight

"When this first (pandemic) started back in April for us, we each thought of some of our elderly patients that may need assistance with shopping and such. I call this little lady in her 90's who still drives herself to our office to ask if we could do any shopping or anything else for her. She was shocked that we offered and was so thankful. She wrote us the kindest note with the most heartfelt message. Her daughter called us to tell us how thankful she was for us thinking of her mother."

"After being closed for over two months, we were trying to keep up with scheduling appointments; we are currently booked out for over a month. I was able to squeeze in a long time patient. She came in with freshly baked cookies. Half of them were regular chocolate chips, and the other half were gluten free. When she came to pick up her contacts she brought another complete batch. She said 'because you guys are the best!"
