(Press Release) HAUPPAUGE, NY – ClearVision Optical recently celebrated its second annual Founder’s Day on May 6 in honor of its inspiring founder, Fred Friedfeld, with a commemoration at its Hauppauge location. Fred, whose birthday was May 6, would have celebrated his 89th birthday this year.
ClearVision created Founder’s Day as an homage to Fred, who, at the age of 22, established the company as a distributor of eyewear. Fred developed a lifelong reputation for personal service; he was an entrepreneur whose strong character and sincere caring for others helped him build relationships with people all over the world.
In 2014, the Friedfeld family established the Fred Friedfeld Memorial scholarship at the SUNY School of Optometry to recognize current optometry graduate students based on academic merit and financial need. Throughout the month of May, ClearVision will connect with friends and partners to remember Fred’s legacy while furthering his pursuit of helping others. Contributions to the scholarship can be made via the Optometry school’s website www.sunyopt.edu by selecting the Fred Friedfeld Memorial Scholarship. Donations are tax-deductible and will be matched by ClearVision.
Friends are invited to share their favorite “Fred” stories and sentiments on the ClearVision Optical Facebook page throughout the month of May.
