EyeBall 2009 ballroom dance show video, of Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration

in Nashville, Tennessee

 

This is a classical ballroom dance show to the music of "The Godfather", performed by Dr. and Mrs. Ming Wang at the 5th annual EyeBall 2009 on 10/3/09 at Opryland Hotel, Nashville, TN, USA. The event was attended by 600 black-tied and ball-gowned guests, including the former governor of Tennessee. The EyeBall is the annual gala of Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration (www.wangfoundation.com), a 501c(3) non-profit charity which helps indigent patients undergo novel sight restoration surgeries performed gratis by the foundation. The foundation doctors published 5 major textbooks and a paper in the world renowned journal "Nature", hold several US patents for inventions of new biotechnologies to restore sight and performed the world's first femtosecond laser-assisted artificial cornea implantation. To date, the foundation has helped patients from over 40 states in the US and 55 countries worldwide, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge. The EyeBall includes a spectacular show that exemplifies the elegance of classical ballroom dancing, and utilizes its breathtaking beauty to remind us how precious God's given gift of sight is, and how much we need to help those who have lost it.
