2023 Wine and Dine in Napa to Keep Kids in Sight

Napa, California -- Partners for Pediatric Vision held our 3rd Wine and Dine to Keep Kids in Sight fundraiser on May 20th, 2023 in Napa, thanks to our generous sponsors Frank and Karen Altamura. Attendees gathered at the Altamura's Yountville restaurant Ciccio for a fabulous dinner paired with their sought-after wines. Sunday morning, the Altamura’s greeted everyone at their gorgeous ranch with a beautiful brunch and wine tasting.

Mo and John shared their experiences as parents who found Partners for Pediatric Vision when their daughter Karena was two. Now ten-year-old Karena Crowley captured everyone’s hearts with her special message of inspiration about overcoming the challenges of Cerebral Visual Impairment and the goals she has set for herself. No one doubts Karena will accomplish great things. As a thank you to our hosts Frank and Karen Altamura, Karena worked with an art teacher to create her very first oil painting of the yellow house at their winery. An electronic video magnifier given to Karena by Partners for Pediatric Vision helped Karena enlarge a photo of the yellow house and made it possible to see the details as she painted.
