On June 18, the Lackawanna branch of the Pennsylvania Association for the Blind will be holding the 26th annual Swing For Sight charity Golf Tournament at Glen Oak Country Club in Clarks Summit. This year, however, there’s one important change to the event – it’s being named for one of Northeastern Eye Institute’s most cherished founding members.

Dr. William Jordan, who passed away earlier this year, had a long association with the Lackawanna County Association for the Blind – serving as a board member for many years.

His dedication to this important charity even extended to his funeral – where in lieu of flowers, the Jordan family asked for donations to be made to the charity instead.

Recognizing Dr. Jordan’s commitment to the Lackawanna County Association for the Blind, the charity has this year chosen to name their popular golf tournament after him. The famous “Swing For Sight” charity tournament, which has been held in the area every year since 1986 (incidentally, the year NEI was founded), will now be known as the William J. Jordan, M.D. Memorial Swing For Sight Golf Tournament.

Everybody at the Northeastern Eye Institute is hugely touched by this kind gesture – and we encourage our friends and patients to support the great work of the Lackawanna County Association for the Blind by signing up for the event. You can fill in an application form here.

The William J. Jordan, M.D. Memorial Swing For Sight Golf Tournament will be held on June 18, with tee off at noon. Registration opens at 10:30am and the tournament will be followed by cocktails and dinner. To reserve your spot, call (570) 342-7613.
