Activities» Large Charity Ball with Canadian deaf entertainer( booked) whose airfare and expenses we we must pay
What success will look like
Success will be...celebration success enabling much publicity and increased client numbers
Long term these celebrations should help us to continue our work through these difficult economic times
The risks are simple: Not gaining enough funds for celebration set up costs. Without them we cannot pay for venues, entertainers, food, and so forth. The lack of celebrations will result in lack of publicity and that in turn of reaching more hearing impaired clients and fulfilling our mission
By providing statistics on the numbers of clients attending events and providing donors who wish to attend any event with the opportunity to do so if they contact us.
