Pacific Eye’s team of physicians will review all nominations and select 10 non-profits to move forward on to the voting round of the challenge. Voting will open to the public on October 29, 2018. Participants may vote once a day for the duration of the contest, which closes at midnight on Thanksgiving Day. The non-profit organizations with the most votes will receive donations totaling $10,000, to be awarded in December.

This is the seventh year Pacific Eye is organizing the contest. Top donations in 2017 went to Honor Flight Network Central Coast, Pacific Wildlife Care, and Family Care Network.
