Hoop It Up 20/20 Challenge

You are invited to join the Alcon Foundation and the American Academy of Optometry Foundation (AAOF) for the Hoop it Up 20/20 Challenge. A virtual free throw competition held at the Alcon Foundation booth (927) during Academy 2018 San Antonio. The challenge will begin Wednesday evening November 7th in the exhibit hall.

Meeting attendees can compete by “shooting” as many virtual baskets as possible within one minute, to help reach the goal of 2,020 baskets. Reaching our goal will trigger a $25,000 donation to the AAOF from the Alcon Foundation, in support of optometric research and education.

AAOF Silent Auction School Basket Challenge

Calling all students, faculty, and alumni!!

Show off your school spirit!!
Fill gift baskets with items that represent your school and city. Search the school store for t-shirts, banners, maybe even game tickets! Be creative.

The baskets will be on display at the AAOF Silent Auction Booth #1027 for bidding on during exhibit hall hours at Academy 2018 San Antonio and will end at the Celebration Luncheon.

If the winning basket bid is $750 or greater, the Foundation will match one Student Giving Matching Travel Grant in 2019 to a student chosen by the school. If the basket raises less than $750 they will be credited and can raise the difference for a SGM travel grant.
