There’s a fantastic fundraiser set for November 18 at the Hyatt Regency/Crown Center presented by the Midwest Ear Institute. HEARAid Gala 2011 “The Best of Broadway” features a night of Tony Award winning songs produced by Anthony Edwards.
The night is to fundraise to assist programs like the “Ear That Hear” service that assists Midwest Ear Institute patients who cannot afford services or whose insurance does not cover services or equipment for children or adults who are deaf, hard of hearing or who experience balance disorders.
The evening consists of a reception, silent auction, a dinner prepared by Chef Frank Majowicz, and a live auction. Once that’s all done, then the musical revue begins.
Tickets can be purchased or donations can be made online at http://www.saintlukesgiving.org/HEARAid. If you have questions about HEARAid, you can reach Irwin Herrero at 816-932-1660.
I think it’s important to support the community with charities and foundations like this to enable everyone to reach their full potential no matter what financial or health barriers they have. Low income families and families without insurance have a difficult time getting equipment like hearing aids when they are needed by children with hearing loss.
