Bridgestone Design Awards to be Presented at Fundraiser

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, through its Consumer OE Tire Sales division, is a sponsor of the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology’s 2008 EyesOn Design Automotive Design Show.

The fundraising event – held June 15 on the grounds of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich. – benefits the DIO’s programs in research, education and support for the visually impaired and blind. The design show is recognized as one of the largest and most complete vehicle displays assembled each year, attracting automotive designers, automotive decision-makers and consumers from around the world.

Five awards, each a crystal sculpture, will be presented: the Bridgestone Best of Show Award, the Bridgestone Honorary Chairman’s Award, the Bridgestone Visionaries Award, the Bridgestone Preserving the Vision Award and the Bridgestone Eye of the Artist Award.
