BENEFITING: Auditory - Verbal Center, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2014
Imagine what your life would be like if you could not hear… Where would you be working? Who would your friends be? We believe every child deserves to hear “I love you” as every mom yearns to hear her child reply with “Mommy, I love you too!” With your help, we can make a life-changing impact for all deaf or hard of hearing children in Georgia by giving them the gift of sound and voice.
Through this annual Gala Event, we expect to have over 250 top donors and sponsors who will enjoy aisles of casino tables, Vegas Showgirls, Elvis entertainment, dancing, dinner and cocktails.
AVC improves the quality of life for mild to profoundly deaf children by teaching them to listen and speak without the use of sign language, lip reading, special assistance, and/or costly interpreters. This therapy liberates children from a world of silence. We hope to increase the donations this year to $60,000, which will provide auditory-verbal therapy and/or hearing aids for those who cannot afford it.
