Support the AAMC Surgical Eye Team’s trip to Guatemala. Bakers and shoppers needed.

Last year, the AAMC’s Surgical Eye Team performed 38 life changing pediatric strabismus surgeries in Guatemala. Strabismus is a vision problem in which both eyes do not look at the same point at the same time. Without surgery, many children and adults face a lifetime of challenges.

This year, AAMC’s Surgical Eye Team is heading back to Guatemala. Our goal is to impact even more children, but we need your help to make this a reality. Support us by baking and shopping!

Come to the Baked Goods and Jewelry Sale on Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Southport Eatery.  All proceeds from our sales support the AAMC Surgical Eye Team.

We are looking for bakers to donate items—please email to keklund@aahs.org for more information.  To find out more about the trip, visit www.facebook.com/vision4Guatemala
