 Miller hosts eighty guests at Texas de Brazil to raise money for fledgling foundation

(Denver, CO)— NFL Linebacker Von Miller of the Denver Broncos hosted eighty guests at Texas de Brazil Monday June 17th to celebrate the launch of his foundation, Von’s Vision.

The Carnival-Style Celebration at the Brazilian Churrascaria was the first fundraising event hosted by Von’s Vision, raising nearly $25,000.

Sports director of 850 KOA, Mark Johnson, emceed the evening, which included a two hour cocktail hour and sizzling hors d’oeuvres from the Texas de Brazil menu. Guests munched, bid on silent auction items, mingled with Miller and learned about his mission to touch the lives of 50,000 youth by the end of 2016, giving them the vision tests and corrective eye wear they need to succeed in the classroom.

“I’ve been a geek my whole life,” Miller said, gesturing to his own corrective frames. “I want to get glasses on these kids’ faces. They can’t learn anything if they can’t see the chalkboard.”

Miller will host his second event, Celebrity Waiter Night, in October.

The mission of Von’s Vision is to better the vision of Denver-area and Texan youth by providing them needed eye examinations and eyewear to succeed in the classroom and in life.  For more information, visit vonmiller.org
