The Battle Creek Cereal City Lions Club presented Grace Health a $1,000 gift for Optometry/Vision Care to assist patients in need of eyeglasses. This gift was made possible by Linda Pell.  After purchasing a Lions of Michigan Foundation raffle ticket and winning the grand prize, Linda decided to share a portion of her winnings by asking the Cereal City Lions Club to select a recipient. Grace Health Optometry/Vision Care was chosen as the recipient of these funds to assist patients with eyeglasses.

Grace Health began providing vision/optometry services in March 2016 and added glasses on June 21, 2017.  Patients may get an eye exam and glasses all at Grace Health.  For those in need, the Cereal City Lions Club and Grace Health are partnering with the Cereal City Eyeglass Program to provide free glasses to qualifying individuals.
