SSHC Dinner & Auction 2015

Hello Friends of Savannah Speech & Hearing Center!

Each year, we have the good fortune to have a benefit for Savannah Speech and Hearing Center’s Sound Start School (A school for the deaf and hard of hearing) hosted by the  Hammond for Hope Foundation.  This year’s benefit will be held on Sunday, September 27, 2015.  The Hammond for Hope Foundation invites friends and business associates of Savannah Speech & Hearing Center and the Savannah Community to gather for a dinner and auction that evening.  The proceeds of the auction benefit Savannah Speech and Hearing Center’s Sound Start. Sound Start is the only auditory/oral school for the deaf and hard of hearing in the low country.

The following day, Monday, September 30th, friends and business associates participate in a wonderfully competitive golf tournament.

We would ask that the Savannah Community and supporters of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community donate items for the auction.  In return, we can offer a great opportunity to advertise your products and services by posting your donation item and thus advertising your business on our website.  We will feature items of local, regional and nationwide interest for silent bidding with a few select items for a live auction. We will display your literature and business cards with your donation.  We also offer hole sponsorship at the golf tournament.

Last year’s Dinner/Auction and Golf Tournament was a tremendous success in part thanks to the generosity of numerous local Savannah business and benefactors.  As a result of their kindness and those who so excitedly bid for those donations, we have seen the Sound Start School thrive.  Please help us keep the momentum moving in such a positive direction by donating this year.

To ensure we have time to publicize your business on our website, receipt of your donation by September 15th, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support of a great service in Savannah!  Please call our auction chairman, Ann Curry, at (912) 355-4601 with any questions.

On behalf of Savannah Speech and Hearing Center, thank you for your support.
