Foundation National Trustee Steve Browne was presented with the Foundation’s Member Excellence Volunteer of the Year Award for the Southwest Region at the VISIONS 2012 national conference in Minneapolis in June. The honor recognizes his excellent service in support of the Foundation’s mission in 2011. Steve has been instrumental in raising awareness locally, and in the success of the 4th Annual San Antonio/Austin 5K VisionWalk earlier this year, leading one of the top fundraising teams in the nation. Over the last four years, his “Sight for Sore Eyes” team has raised an astounding $270,000 for vision-saving research. Congratulations Steve!
