2011

In 2011 the WANTZ Committee once again proudly supported the Hear and Say Centre, a specialist Paediatric Hearing Assessment and Early Intervention Centre.

The Hear and Say Centre is one of the leading Paediatric Auditory-Verbal and cochlear implant centres in the world, teaching children who are deaf or hearing impaired to listen and speak. They use 'state of the art' equipment and provide a range of services for children including newborn hearing screening and complex diagnostic assessment. The Centre aims for its children to achieve speech and language in the normal range for their age by six years of age giving them the opportunity for a mainstream education, employment of choice and social integration with the hearing world.

The Centre is a charity based in Brisbane with regional centres on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns, Townsville and Toowoomba with an Outreach program for rural and remote children. It is a family based program recognizing the parent as the natural language teacher of the child.

THANK YOU:

A big thank you to all our wonderful sponsors, donors, members of the medical community, and individuals who donated so generously.

We would also like to thank Snap Printing Milton for their very generous printing support, Mr. David Pugh and Ms. Jade Thompson of Restaurant TWO for their amazing contribution, help and support, Queensland Opera for donating their time to entertain us during the dinner, our auctioneer Mr. George Trovas, all the donors of the absolutely fabulous Auction and Raffle Prizes and The Wine Emporium for their donation of wine for the table prizes. A big thank you, also, to MDA National who donated the lucky door prize, and to all our dinner guests who contributed so generously.

AMOUNT RAISED:

The WANTZ Committee was able to raise approximately $145,000 to buy the equipment on the WANTZ Hear and Say Wish List, none of which would have been possible without the generosity of all our sponsors and donors.

ANNUAL DINNER:

The culmination of the WANTZ Committee's fundraising every year was a spectacular dinner at Restaurant 'TWO', arguably Brisbane's best restaurant, on the night of Brisbane's Riverfire held on 3rd September, 2011. Guests included members of Brisbane's medical, legal, banking, government and business communities.
