We are pleased to support this benefit show to help raise funds and bring attention to this very serious issue.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 7, 2006
Clarity, a division of Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE: PLT) and the nation’s leading supplier of amplified telephones, today announced a special promotion to help raise funds to support The EAR Foundation, a national non-profit devoted to education, prevention and treatment of hearing loss, one of the nation’s most prevalent yet overlooked disabilities.
Clarity is offering its Clarity® C435 amplified telephone at a special discount in conjunction with its sponsorship of the upcoming Grand Ole Gospel Signature Show on July 15 at the Grand Ole Opry®. The gospel show, which will feature The Gaither Vocal Band, Jeff & Sheri Easter and The Crabb Family, will raise awareness and funds to benefit The EAR Foundation and help those with hearing loss.
For every purchase of its Clarity® C435 amplified phone between now and July 15th, Clarity will donate $5 directly to The EAR Foundation. Clarity is making the phone available at a special price of $49.95 (normal MSRP: $139.95) during this time to help support The EAR Foundation’s worthy cause.
“The EAR Foundation is an important organization devoted to helping the millions nationwide struggling with hearing loss,” said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. “We are pleased to support this benefit show to help raise funds and bring attention to this very serious issue.”
The EAR Foundation is partnering with the Opry for this special evening and will be on site providing information about its mission, including providing support services promoting the integration of the hearing and balance impaired into mainstream society. In conjunction with the Signature Show, http://www.opry.com will host an online auction benefiting the EAR Foundation July 10-24.
The C435 is a sleek cordless phone that makes telephone conversations clearer and easier to understand for the millions of Americans with mild to moderate hearing loss. The phone features a discreet design and a stand up base that makes the telephone appear less like a hearing device and more like a standard cordless phone, allowing users to feel more comfortable about addressing their hearing loss.
