FRIDAY, January 15

8:00 pm – In celebration of our 20th anniversary, Geoff Tabin, MD (aka Wilheim Jorge), co-founder of the Himalayan Cataract Project and a highly-accomplished mountain climber (Geoff was the fourth person in the world to achieve the Seven Summits), is returning for a special cameo appearance Friday evening. Geoff will present “From Everest to Curing Blindness,” documenting his efforts to eliminate preventable blindness in third world countries by performing life-changing, low-cost cataract surgery, restoring sight to the previously blind. Climbers and non-climbers alike will be moved by Geoff’s humanitarian efforts throughout the world. All proceeds from this presentation will directly support Geoff’s organization.
