Mr. Tom Sullivan inspired all in attendance!  Tom’s life story is truly unique and a story meant to be shared – all would agree! Not to mention his witty sense of humor, wonderful way with words, and his undeniable talent behind the piano and singing the night away.  The InfantSEE program saves lives and it was great to hear true stories of hope and vision.  A huge thank you to the Allergan Foundation and the AOA Foundation for sponsoring this wonderful night.  Click here for photos from the event.
