2018 Eye Open Recap (22nd Annual)
Low clouds and calm winds greeted golfers at the Eisenhower Golf Course at the beautiful Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs on June 18th.
Dr. Jim Barad with EverythingForSight.org teamed up with the SEE THE FUTURE Fund for the third consecutive year. High schools from up-and-down the Front Range of Colorado joined adults of all ages for a fun day on the links.
Mr. Derek Riemer, a 2013 SEE THE FUTURE recipient, CU-Boulder graduate and new Google employee, was part of the Eye Open this year and graciously greeted all the golfers on hole #3. Thank you Derek!
