Glazer Vision Foundation to contribute $1.5 million for the Glazer Family Playground at The Pier
September 9, 2020 -
The City of St. Petersburg has announced a 30-year agreement with the Glazer Vision Foundation in which the foundation will support the playground at the St. Petersburg Pier, which opened in early July. An unveiling ceremony with new signage for the playground will be announced at a later date. The Glazer Vision Foundation honors the legacy of the late Malcolm Glazer, who attributed his first pair of prescription eyeglasses to an enhanced ability to learn and succeed. To date, the foundation has provided more than 100,000 free eye screenings and 20,000 free prescription glasses to local students.
