A Century of Hearing

Thanks to our guests, sponsors, and supporters, the Hearing and Speech Center’s Centennial Gala raised over $140,000!  

Each year, the Center offers free and reduced-cost services to thousands of individuals and families, and we couldn’t do it without your help. Event guests pledged their support for infant hearing testing, better communication for seniors, youth activities, advocacy services, speech therapy, and more! Stay tuned for more event photos and updates!

The gala included several members of our youth group, who spoke about their experiences with hearing loss and getting support from the Hearing and Speech Center programs. In case you missed it, check out our video, featuring the story of program participant, Jennifer. Jennifer and HSC staff member Shannon have know each other for almost 20 years – take a look to learn more about the story of Jennifer’s communication journey. Staff members like Shannon mentor children and youth, and these relationships are so important and meaningful!



Your gift in honor of the centennial can still make a difference! As we celebrate 100 years of service to the community, you can help us ensure that the Hearing and Speech Center’s vital work will continue for the next 100 years. Please join us by making your gift today.
