Traditional Bank is proud to be a long-time supporter of the Lexington Hearing & Speech Center (LHSC), the only organization of its kind serving the needs of infants, children & adults with hearing loss and speech delay in Kentucky. On November 10, the bank will participate as a sponsor for the center’s signature fundraising event – the Frankel Cocktails and Casino Night, named in honor of LHSC founders Jim and Edie Frankel. These fundraising efforts help the center in its mission to teach all children to listen and talk, regardless of their ability to pay, and help build a sound beginning for a lifetime of learning and achieving.
On November 10, the center at 350 Henry Clay Boulevard will be transformed into a high-end cocktail party with live music, casino style gaming, poker tournament and delicious food & drinks from Lexington restaurants and distilleries including Parlay Social, Rossi’s, The Dish, Bourbon & Toulouse and West Sixth Brewery. Tickets are still available and can be purchased online or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Traditional Bank and its employees have actively volunteered with LHSC for the past 10 years. Traditional Bank president Bill Alverson is a past board president and was recently inducted to the distinguished Frankel Hall of Fame, honoring community members who have positively impacted the center in a significant way. Current LHSC board president, Dana Adamson, is the Marketing Officer for Traditional Bank.
“Without LHSC, many families facing hearing loss and speech delay would not know where to turn,” said Adamson. “From the moment an infant fails that initial hearing screening in the hospital LHSC, is ready to help; providing support and giving each family the tools they need to succeed. I am in awe of the great work they do, and feel blessed to be a part of it in some small way.”
The unique oral learning environment that LHSC provides makes them a valued resource for families from all parts of Kentucky, including those served by the University of Kentucky’s renowned cochlear implant program. In 2011, LHSC served families from over 50 different counties, many driving great distances to receive services. To learn more about LHSC visit their website at www.lhscky.org.
