On Friday August 9th, nine Starkey HearCare offices spread throughout Southern Illinois joined forces with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in hosting a celebrity golf event and hearing mission.
The golf event and hearing mission took place at Franklin Country Club in West Frankfort, Illinois. Baseball Hall of Famers and former St. Louis Cardinals Lou Brock and Whitey Herzog played in the tournament.
Alongside the golf event, close to 30 children and adults were fit with Starkey’s most advanced hearing aids, free of cost thanks to the efforts of Starkey HearCare and Starkey’s “So the World May Hear” foundation.
“To see the gift of hearing provided to those in need was an extremely special moment and something that words cannot describe. The Southern Illinois All American Team did a fantastic job & I am excited to be a part of it for years to come,” says Dan Weinberger, a regional marketing coordinator for the Starkey HearCare marketing team, who was able to attend the hearing mission.
Starkey HearCare is committed to helping the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s goal of providing 1 million hearing aids to people in this decade.
