Women in Eye and Vision Research Silent Auction

The Women in Eye and Vision Research (WEAVR) Silent Auction raised funds for the ARVO Foundation to annually support two travel grants and one Developing Country Eye Researcher Travel Fellowship for female scientists.

The Silent Auction offered its final items for bid in 2016 as WEAVR and the ARVO Foundation refocused its fundraising strategy. In its nine-year history, the Silent Auction offered incredible items donated by ARVO members from tickets to a Boston Red Sox game to a painting made by a cornea transplant recipient to a a 30-minute meeting with a research pioneer. The ARVO Foundation is grateful to everyone who supported the WEAVR Auction as a donor or a bidder over the years!
