NSSLHA Spring Banquet:
Our single biggest fundraiser of the year involved a banquet with faculty, students, and friends of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology students.   During this time a silent auction took place with donations from all of the wonderful 2015 Sponsors (see Sponsor tab).  We were able to raise over $1,000 for AACORN Farm in Kalamazoo.  For more information on AACORN Farm, visit their website: http://aacornfarm.org

Bowling for Books:
Bowling for Books in an annual event organized by NSSLHA in honor of Jackson to promote literacy in Kalamazoo.  A group of NSSLHA members and community members came out to Pinz on Stadium Dr. and bowled for an afternoon. During this time we were able to raise over $200 and collect numerous new or gently used children's books to donate to the Kalamazoo Drop-In Center.

NSSLHA Loves: 
One of our biggest fundraising goals this year is to raise at least $500 to go to the NSSLHA Loves campaign.  The NSSLHA Loves campaign is a community service initiative sponsored by NSSLHA to provide funding and awareness to national organizations that work with people living with communication disorders. One hundred percent of the donations raised go to the recipient organization.
This year's recipient is Hands & Voices.  Hands and Voices is a parent-driven organization to help support the families of those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
