Guests gathered on the 36th Floor of Sales Force Tower in the City to celebrate supporting more than 18,000 homeless people over the past two decades.

Elaine Styles, Chair of the charity and one of the founder optometrists, told guests that the number of regional clinics will increase from seven to 24 in the near future.
