Dr. Chynn’s Charities

As New York’s “Most Ethical” Laser Vision Correction Centre (CBS News TV, 11/23/04), Park Avenue LASEK is committed to helping the community by donating to charities.

Over the past decade, we have a dozen LASEKs for various charities, including the Dartmouth Club of New York, Cordozo Law School, Mt. Sinai Medical School, Pups for Peace (which trains bomb-sniffing dogs in Israel), Our Lady of Pompeii (Dr. Chynn’s church), and V-Day (preventing violence against women).We have raised over $200,000 in total for these charities! Each charity raises between $4,000 – $10,000 per donated LASEK (the regular retail price/value for this donated LASEK is $4,000). The better job that your charity does of promoting this valuable auction/raffle item, the higher you will be on this range! Understand that potential donors need to be psychologically prepared to bid or purchase raffle tickets on the free LASEK (unlike other donation items). This is because it is a surgical procedure (not dinner for 4). This means that they will need sufficient ways to “qualify” us as a top-notch centre, and Dr. Chynn as a world class surgeon. Otherwise they will not be comfortable/confident enough to bid/buy raffle tickets.

The Chynn Family Foundation is recognized by the IRS as a charitable organization, and was established in 2005 to promote education. The Chynn Family Foundation has donated over $100,000 to endowment scholarships to middle school students at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Tenafly, NJ, high school students at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, NJ, college students at Fordham University, and radiology residents at Columbia Medical School.
