Solutia Automotive sponsors Eyes on Design 2002 Fundraising Event

Solutia Inc. announced that it is co-sponsoring the Eyes on Design Private Eyes brunch on Sunday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The brunch is being held in conjunction with the 15th annual Eyes on Design (June 7-9) at the DaimlerChrysler Technology Center in Auburn Hills, Mich. Eyes on Design benefits the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO).
"We are excited about the opportunity to be involved in the 2002 Eyes on Design event," said Robert A. Clausen, Solutia senior vice president and chief financial officer. "As a provider of a product that relates directly to visibility within an automobile, our thoughts are with the many vision impaired people who will benefit from this event."

Vanceva(TM) Color, one of Solutia's new Vanceva(TM) brand of superior performing interlayer products, has been used extensively by vehicle designers to enhance the design of concept and production vehicles. Solutia is also the leading producer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), the interlayer used in windshields, side, rear, and roof glass.

"Vanceva(TM) Color helps designers to look at the glass instead of through it," said Clausen. "We couldn't think of a better venue to showcase that concept than the Eyes on Design event, while making a contribution to an extremely worthwhile organization such as the DIO."

Tickets for the brunch are $100 per person, $50 for children 12 and under, and may be purchased by calling (313) 824-EYES (3937). Automotive professionals, as well as the general public, are welcomed to attend.

Eyes on Design is one of the world's premier car shows, and the only show to focus on the emotion and character of automotive design. Each year the event raises money to benefit the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO), a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation in Grosse Pointe Park, Mich. Eyes on Design is the primary source of revenue for the DIO's research, education and support group programs that enhance the independence of the visually impaired.
