25 Feb Underhill supports Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre
Underhill Geomatics is a proud sponsor of the third annual Family Concert, a fundraiser for the Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC.
The Centre is the only school in Western Canada that teaches deaf and hard of hearing children to listen and to speak – for themselves. With access to the right technology and teachers, deaf and hard of hearing children are learning to find their voices and fully integrate into the mainstream hearing world.
Underhill became involved with the Centre through one of our employees, whose daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss at birth and has attended the Centre since she was three months old. Now almost two years old, she is talking and learning just like any hearing child her age.
This year’s concert will feature Vancouverite Jennifer Gasoi, fresh off her win for Best Childrens Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Gasoi’s intelligent, jazz-based songs are winning over music lovers of all ages and earning her widespread critical acclaim.
Gasoi will perform a morning and an afternoon show on April 12, 2014. Proceeds from the event will go to the Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre.
