The eighth annual Cocktails for A Cause, held recently at the Tripp House in Scranton, was a fundraiser hosted by Peckville-based optometrist, Dr. Rebecca Schoonover. The event is held annually and proceeds are donated to Lackawanna Branch Pennsylvania Association for the Blind and Research to Prevent Blindness, a national organization dedicated to blindness research. More than $3,200 was donated in memory of Thomas Mann. Several of Dr. Schoonover's colleagues from the optometry world were in attendance to lend their support.
