DEAFNESS RESEARCH FOUNDATION HOSTED THE
SKATE FOR SOUND BENEFIT AT CITY ICE PAVILION

The Deafness Research Foundation hosted their first annual Skate For Sound
benefit on Saturday, April 9th at the City Ice Pavilion in Long Island City to raise
funds and awareness for those living with hearing loss. Over 200 friends, family,
and partners of Deafness Research Foundation joined special guest Eve Chalom, a two-time ice dancing national silver medalist for a day of family fun and skating at City Ice Pavilion. Chalom, who lives with substantial hearing loss, having lost most of her hearing in both ears after a childhood accident, will perform during the benefit.

The benefit featured a silent auction, activities for the entire family, including skating, hot chocolate from Starbucks, and cupcakes by The Sweet Life, followed by a special live performance by famed ice dance company Ice Theater of New York. Proceeds benefited the Deafness Research Foundation (DRF), whose mission is to attain a lifetime of healthy hearing and balance through quality research, education, and advocacy. Since its founding in 1958, DRF has awarded approximately 2,000 research grants, totaling over $26 million. For more information visit: http://drf.org.
