2019 Year in Review: See What You Helped Us Accomplish
Thursday, January 23, 2020

The year 2019 was one to remember for Von’s Vision, as the foundation managed to uphold long-running traditions while also incorporating exciting new expansions. As we enter into the new year and look back on the past one, we'd like to offer a big THANK YOU to all our donors, supporters and volunteers for everything you have helped us accomplish!

In the spring, we continued the Von’s Vision Day program by hosting our sixth consecutive Vision Day at Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center in Denver. Our partner doctors set up to provide no-cost vision screenings and exams for 80 children in attendance. Those students got to pick out a pair of glasses and were invited to the sixth annual Reveal Party at Mile High Stadium, where they got to meet Von and enjoy a celebration.

Von’s Vision also held its first-ever College Vision Day in the spring. Over 70 students from UC Denver and Denver University received no-cost vision screenings at Vision Care Specialists’ downtown office, courtesy of Von’s Vision.

In collaboration with Essilor Vision Foundation, Von’s Vision also held its first Von’s Vision Fest at Mile High Stadium. Taking place on the same day as the Reveal Party, the foundation welcomed over 200 students from Denver Public Schools in to receive free eye exams and a new pair of high-end frames.

After launching the inaugural Von’s Vision Center at the Broncos Boys & Girls Club in November of 2018, we began incorporating our first Exam Days. Courtesy of Hero Practice Services and Etnia Barcelona, a total of 120 students were served by the Vision Centers in 2019. New Vision Centers were even launched at Cope Boys & Girls Club in Denver and on the campus of Texas A&M University.

In addition to the new programs, we also held a new event! Von Miller’s Celebrity Bowling Bash was held in June at Bowlero Lone Tree in Denver, featuring Von and 18 of his Broncos teammates bowling alongside fans and foundation supporters. The 175 guests in attendance helped to raise more than $64,000 for Von’s Vision.

Lastly, Von hosted his second annual Western Round-Up in November, which was again held at Mile High Station & Ironworks. Guests showed up in their best cowboy attire and enjoyed a Western-themed cocktail reception, dinner program and after party. Von’s Vision raised over $350,000 and showcased the story of Tima’jaye and how the foundation has impacted her life. You can view that video here!

In recognition of  all he has done in the community, Von was presented with numerous awards in 2019, including the Denver Broncos Community Impact Award, the Broncos’ nomination for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, the Jefferson Award for Outstanding Public Service and his third consecutive year as an NFLPA Community MVP.

In all, Von’s Vision was able to touch the lives of 721 students this past year. We would not have created such meaningful impact in Colorado and Texas without your continued support. To view photos from this past year, visit our website’s photo gallery or our Facebook albums.
