Ali St Cyr & Joe Maddon Raise Awareness for Local Nonprofit

Ali St Cyr joins former Tampa Bay Rays and Chicago Cubs manager and current LA Angels skipper, Joe Maddon, to talk about the Lions Eye Institute. The world’s largest ocular tissue bank in the world is right here in Tampa. And as the 2019-2020 Lions Eye Foundation Board Chair, Ali is raising awareness about what the institute does in restoring the vision for many people.
The Lions Eye Institute for Transplant and Research is a nonprofit organization that transforms lives by restoring sight for those with visual impairments and improving the quality of life for tissue recipients. They are the largest combined eye bank, tissue recovery, and ocular research center in the world. The nonprofit has helped restore eyesight to more than 140,000 people across the globe.
