The People of Vision Award was established in 1985 by Prevent Blindness to provide appropriate recognition to Ohio’s top corporate and civic leaders for the outstanding philanthropic works they have undertaken. The People of Vision Award events across Ohio have become premier philanthropic events each year. The events combined generate more than $200,000 for sight-saving programs provided by Prevent Blindness and are attended by approximately 750 community leaders.
Planning is underway for the 2022 People of Vision Award events. Below are the details and links to each individual event that contain more information along with sponsorship opportunities.
