HLAA Annual Dinner

Creek Country Club
Also honored at the banquet
for support of Hearing Loss Association were: Penfield
Public Library, community service award; Joseph
Kozelsky, AuD, Webster Hearing Center, HLAA chapter award;
and Larry Taylor, Monroe County Library System, community
of thanks to all who supported 2011 Walk4Hearing...
Thank you for all that you did, to make this
walk the most successful to date: We raised $10,000 more than
we did last year, for a grand total of $50,000!
It was your support, and your superb attendance at the walk,
that made the difference. We had 450 people in Perinton
Town Park, some to walk, some to run, and lots to cheer
And that means:
we can support our high school students going into college,
we can get the word out about hearing loss,
we can try to target the baby boomers who have a hearing loss and are not doing
anything about it yet,
we can support the captioning of Broadway shows coming into Rochester, and
we can support our armed forces and returning veterans by educating them about
It's all because of your work and your diligence that we are able to do as much
as we can do, to improve the quality of life for all our friends, family and
community, who have a hearing loss or who know someone with a hearing loss.
We thank you and appreciate your willingness to involve yourself and others in
this important cause.
Have a great summer. You deserve it!
