Less than 6% of children that can benefit from a cochlear implant receive them today, simply because they do not know they exist
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Good People Creative, the Nashville-based content marketing company, is hosting the 2nd Annual Golf Tournament benefiting Songs for Sound on October 13 at the Nashville Golf & Athletic Club in Brentwood, TN. Lunch will be served at 12 noon with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.
Songs for Sound is a Nashville-based non-profit organization devoted to helping children hear! They promote cochlear hearing implant awareness through music and have helped hundreds of children experience hearing for the first time. Unfortunately, less than 50% of children diagnosed with hearing issues at birth receive follow-up services, and Jaime wants to improve those statistics significantly.
“Less than 6% of children that qualify for a cochlear implant receive them, simply because they do not know it is available”, says Jaime Vernon, founder of Songs for Sound. “It is our mission to change that and bring hearing to as many children as possible”. The organization also provides rehabilitation services including speech / audiology services to children in need, regardless of race, religion and any other criteria.
The charity raises awareness and funds primarily through music-inspired events across the country, but also with community events such as the Golf Tournament. “We are very excited to be partnering with Songs for Sound again this year”, says Cole Evans, owner of Good People Creative. “Jaime’s joy in giving the gift of hearing to deaf and hearing impaired children is inspirational. It is just natural to want to help facilitate that with her”.
