Clever Chapter Fundraiser -- Cruise with Communication Access

HLAA Chapters are always looking for ways 
to raise money. 
Here's a clever fun-raiser raffle with a communication 
accessible cruise as the prize.

A chance to "Win a Cruise 4 Two" will be given soon to some lucky raffle winner! A donation of $10 per raffle ticket (6 for $50) is all it takes for someone to win. Whether you win or not, all are invited to join others on an Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Royal Caribbean Ship, Allure of the Seas

This is a Florida Fun Fundraiser to help HLAA Chapters in Florida and the HLAA Florida State Association. It allows them to reach out through convention scholarships, hold one-day educational expos, and support whatever chapters decide to do to make a difference for people with hearing loss in their communities.

Get your raffle tickets from Lynn Rousseau by emailing her. This is your opportunity to “Win a Cruise 4 Two,” but even more important, to provide financial support for HLAA in Florida.

Cruise the Seas
If taking a fully communication accessible cruise interests you, you can get on board with a refundable deposit of $250 per person, with full payment due in August. The Allure sails out of Ft. Lauderdale on November 8, 2015, for a week-long cruise of the Eastern Caribbean. It’s a great way to get out of the cold and bask in the sunshine for a week. You can even do your holiday shopping and come home with a tan!

Lynn Rousseau says, "Last year’s travelers had a great time. The ship’s entertainment director had fun testing the CART provider each time he spoke and commented enjoying seeing his words in print. It was a powerful way to show what CART can do for thousands aboard the ship who had never heard of it. We were delighted that he also spoke about HLAA and our efforts to provide communication access on the ship. Many people asked us about both CART and HLAA, and, we held our first meeting at sea. Please think about joining us in 2015."

For more information on the cruise, contact Barbara Maher by email or call her at 800.800.7703, extension 112. Be sure to mention HLAA-Florida for the group rate, and choose a cabin that suits your needs.
