It’s time to re-register your Ralph’s card into our community rewards program. As a reminder, you must re-register your card every September, even if you just registered in the program in August.
The Walk was a great success. Our LA Stars Team was once again the top team at $4099 as of this am. Everyone did a great job getting donations this year. I want to congratulate our Wendi Washington for gathering $1392 in donations. Also congratulations to Liz Lesan who had $1212. Wow!
The HLAA Walk4Hearing began in 2006 with just 6 walks and a dream of raising awareness for the hearing loss community. Ten years later, 22 walks around the country have made HLAA’s Walk4Hearing one of the largest fundraising events for people with hearing loss. Besides funds, the walks bring much-needed visibility to an often invisible condition. Please join other Southern Californians as we walk for the common goal of raising funds and awareness to the hearing loss community.
Thanks to Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder, our April 16th garage sale was a great success, netting over $1,000! They went above and beyond the call of duty, and we cannot thank them enough.
Our Annual HLAA-LA garage sale is right around the corner. This year our garage sale will be held at the home of Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder in Altadena. This fundraiser is one of our biggest efforts as we try to raise $1000 that goes toward the cost of captioning our meetings. At the end of the sale, any unsold items are always donated to charity.
Here is our CPK dinner group…thanks again to all who came or donated. So kind of you! Sorry if I missed anyone who went at another time.
Note from Alicia
Hope you can all scroll through our photos. Sorry I did not get everyone, but it was definitely a group effort! We had a blast. We also came back with the same amount of stuff as we dropped off. We shopped till we dropped! Full car. Good taste people who donated.
We are having our annual garage sale Saturday, April 11 from 7 to 2! Please save the date! The garage sale will take place on Brookfield Road in Chatsworth, at the home of Ram and Sharmilla Krishnan.
If you are able to help out, we need you!!
