    Long term these celebrations should help us to continue our work through these difficult economic times

    Risk

    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

    Reporting
