BATON ROUGE – Williamson Eye Center and Marucci Sports are coming together Friday to honor and support local law enforcement at the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office by providing the men and women of the sheriff's office with Marucci sunglasses to protect their eyes as they serve our community.
“Our local law enforcement put their lives on the line for us day in and day out and their vision is crucial in everything they do. This is one small way we can give back and show our gratitude to these men and women for their service and dedication,” said Charles Williamson, Jr., Administrator at Williamson Eye Center.
The event will take place from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. and representatives from Williamson Eye Center and Marucci Sports will also supply lunch to members of the sheriff's office.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to serve those who serve us. We know how important their work is and our goal is to make their jobs a little safer by providing them with quality eyewear,” said Michael Uffman, Marucci CFO and Chairman of Marucci Cares.
