The Vision of Children Foundation will host A Night for Sight featuring a very special concert: A.J. Croce performing “Croce Plays Croce” al fresco on the Field of Dreams sports complex.
The evening will include a reception with a silent auction, dinner, live auction, and opportunity drawing. Visually impaired since childhood, Croce, a singer, songwriter, and virtuoso pianist, though now residing in Nashville, has strong ties with San Diego. His mother, Ingrid Croce, opened the renowned Croce’s Restaurant & Bar in 1985.
For 31 years, the Gaslamp staple was a venue for budding artists, including A.J. “Croce Plays Croce” pays homage to the legacy of A.J.’s father, Jim Croce, who died too soon, leaving one of pop music’s most beautiful and memorable ballads in his wake, “Time in a Bottle,” written for A.J. Proceeds will help fund critical vision research at UC San Diego Health to find cures for genetic vision disorders and childhood blindness, and to provide support services for children living with blindness or visual impairment and their families.
