TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. – Footballs are flying, leaves are turning and bespectacled pumpkins are appearing in our community … you know what that means… Once again, the Gogain Group of Keller Williams Realty, in cooperation with One Sight and Lions Clubs International, will be participating in this year’s Sight night. Sight Night is an international effort to provide used eyewear to needy people across the globe. Looking for an easy way to participate in a global act of kindness this Halloween? This may be your answer.

Instead of Halloween candy, the Gogain Group will be asking for your help in “scaring” up used eyewear during the month of October. For more than 20 years these glasses have been recycled and hand delivered to underprivileged people around the world. This year Sight Night’s quest is to help 7 million people.

And you can help to achieve this worthwhile goal by donating your used prescription eyeglasses and prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. Big or small, trendy or not, your eyewear could help someone in need to see the world more clearly. The Gogain Group will be accepting donations throughout the month of October and has set up the following drop-off locations in Tahoe Donner, Truckee, Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe:

• Keller Williams Boice Realty, 11382 Northwoods Blvd., at the corner of Northwoods and Northwoods, Truckee

• Tahoe Donner’s Trout Creek Recreation Center, 12790 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee

• Keller Williams Downtown, 10192 Donner Pass Road, next to El Toro Bravo, Truckee

• Keller Williams O’Neal Brokers, 660 N. Lake Blvd., near the Boatworks Mall, Tahoe City

• Alice’s Village Market, The Village in Squaw Valley

The Gogain Groups thanks you for joining them in this act of kindness. For more information on this program visit http://www.sightnight.org, http://www.onesight.org or to contact the Gogain Group directly call Donna or Leon Gogain at 530-448-4781.
