Luxottica Group’s employees decided to wish Leonardo Del Vecchio, the company’s founder and chairman, a happy 80th birthday through a full-page advertisement in the Italian daily Corriere della Sera on Friday. “77,395 wishes. Happy birthday president, from the whole world of Luxottica,” read the page, which featured a sketch of a pair of glasses.

Earlier this week, Del Vecchio revealed plans to distribute an aggregate maximum of 140,000 Luxottica Group shares worth about 9 million euros, or $10 million at current exchange, to all of his firm’s 8,000 employees in Italy.
