Memorial Day Weekend Pool Party & BBQ Fun!

It was a fun time during the annual HLAA-LA Memorial Day party with beautiful weather. A great turnout showed up to catch up on the latest a greatest news with everyone. It was actually hard to say hi to everyone with so many people and great food! Especially rewarding was to see some folks we don’t get to see as often as we would like so a great environment all around.

Walk4Hearing – Coming June 11!

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.
