HOPE-Bob. Fight for Sight was honored to be one of Bob Hope's continuing major interests. Beginning with his generous coast-to-coast telecast for Fight for Sight in 1960, Bob Hope brought excitement, friends, and crucial attention as Honorary Chairman of FFS for 45 years. Until the late '90s, he served as Master of Ceremonies at 25 ``Lights On'' benefits in New York City raising funds for research to prevent blindness. The Board of Directors and volunteers offer sympathies to his wife Dolores, and family, and extend our thanks for sharing this incredible man with us for such great good. Kenneth R. Barasch, M.D. President
