This event is celebrating the life of Dr. Eric J. Stein. He was a champion for the elderly, and for pets - especially dogs. He was an ambassador of cheer, humor, and encouragement everywhere he went, a courageous advocate for the less fortunate, a passionate Board member for Project Compassion, and a loyal, life-long friend to those lucky enough to know him. He adored his family. He was an outstanding optometrist who truly enjoyed treating his patients. He also loved Hearts of Gold! Come out, have fun, and help us celebrate a life well lived. The Stein family is grateful for all who support this event in honor of Eric and they ask everyone to remember residents in long term care at the holidays and everyday.
