Each year, the Starkey Hearing Foundation supporters come to the RiverCentre in St. Paul, Minnesota for a Grammy and Academy Awards-inspired Gala spectacular. The So the World May Hear Awards Gala celebrates the spirit of giving by honoring humanitarians who dedicate their time to helping others and making the world a better place.
Check out the video to see a recap of our 2014 Starkey Gala, including performances by John Legend, Jessica Sanchez, Sammy Hagar and Rob Thomas and guest appearances by Hillary Clinton, Norm Crosby, Forest Whitaker, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Derrick Coleman and many more.
a. About Starkey Hearing Foundation
Starkey Hearing Foundation uses hearing as a vehicle to reflect caring and change lives around the world. Disabling hearing loss affects more than 360 million people, including 32 million children, worldwide, yet many do not have access to the hearing devices that can help them. As a member of Clinton Global Initiative, Starkey Hearing Foundation has pledged to provide more than one million hearing aids to people in need this decade and currently gives more than 175,000 hearing aids annually. In addition to giving the gift of hearing through worldwide hearing missions, Starkey Hearing Foundation promotes hearing health awareness and education through the Listen Carefully campaign and provides hearing instruments to low-income Americans through the Hear Now program. Started as the philanthropic effort of Starkey Hearing Technologies, Starkey Hearing Foundation was founded by William F. Austin in 1984. For more information visit www.starkeyhearingfoundation.org.
