Every year, guests may contribute direct monetary support to important Lions projects via the Fund-an-Item portion of our program. Proceeds from the 2019 Fund-an-Item will be shared equally between two outstanding organizations: Listen and Talk and the UW Medicine Eye Institute.
Listen and Talk
Listen and Talk teaches children with hearing loss to communicate and learn through listening and spoken language. Every day we are driven by our vision that no child is limited by hearing loss.
The children of Listen and Talk achieve remarkable success thanks to the combination of proven auditory-verbal educational methods and the use of advanced hearing technology such as digital hearing aids, cochlear implants, personal FM systems, and soundfield amplification systems for classrooms. With the aid of technology, committed families, and early intervention provided by Listen and Talk professionals, almost all children with hearing loss can learn to listen and use spoken language, allowing them to fully participate in a hearing world.
Listen and Talk relies on foundation, corporate, and community support to raise the funds necessary to deliver services to the families that need them. And we would not be able to reach all those we care for without the outstanding commitment of our friends at the University Lions Club. As the proud beneficiary of the FUND-AN-ITEM portion of tonight’s event – and on behalf of our board of trustees and our staff members THANK YOU. Your generous donations this evening will make a significant impact on the lives of the families and children we serve.
With your support, Listen and Talk will continue to help children with severe hearing losses to reach their full potential.
The UW Medicine Eye Institute. The UW Medicine Eye Institute’s mission is simple: to eliminate suffering from blinding eye disease. It does this by giving patients – even those who couldn’t normally afford it, state of the art care for their eye diseases, discovering new treatments through cutting edge research and training first-rate ophthalmologists for the Northwest and beyond.
The University Lions support of the UW Medicine Eye Institute reflects its commitment to both the prevention and remediation of blindness through data based clinical research. Patients with corneal disease range in age from very young to senior citizens.
Please give to the FUND-AN-ITEM and support the UW Medicine Eye Institute’s work in patient care, research and teaching. In doing so, you can provide the “gift of sight” to a visually impaired person in need. THANK YOU!
