FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunridge International (OTC Bulletin Board: SNDZ), announced today that its CEO, G. Richard Smith will be traveling to Boston this weekend to attend the first planned fund raiser for the "Eyes for Cuba" medical relief program. The event will take place at Boston's House of Blues on the 19th.
The "Eyes for Cuba" relief program is partnered by star baseball player Luis Tiant, Scientific Social Solutions Charity (S3) of Boston, and Sunridge International. The purpose of the drive is to raise money to send much needed medical equipment and supplies to Cuba to treat glaucoma patients that may otherwise go blind for the lack of other available treatment options. Sunridge will send a medical team to Cuba to train doctors to perform its patented two-minute, non-invasive glaucoma treatment Pneumatic Trabeculoplasty (PNT). It will also ship and distribute medical equipment and supplies, allowing local doctors to continue to treat patients after the team has returned to the U.S.
"It is estimated that approximately 100 patients can be treated for a full year with every $5,000 we raise," states Larry Belcamino, Director of S3.
"It should be a great time," says G. Richard Smith, "there is going to be food, drinks, and both silent and live auctions. If you live in or around the Boston area, you should consider attending. You can have a great time while helping a great cause. If interested, please call 888-238-1570 or go to www.eyesforcuba.org.
