hearing loss, alumni, fundraising

Haley Drucker, Child’s Voice alumna, speaks to attendees at the MBBI annual golf outing.

Along the sparkling shores of Lake Geneva, more than 250 golfers, sponsors, and supporters enjoyed a day of golf and fundraising on July 9 at Geneva National Resort, raising $11,600 for children with hearing loss.  For the sixth year running, the Midwest Business Brokers and Intermediaries (MBBI) chose Child’s Voice as the beneficiary of their annual golf tournament.

MBBI is comprised of business brokers, M&A intermediaries, investment bankers, attorneys, accountants, bankers, SBA lenders, wealth managers and more who collaborate to create the most valuable experience for respective clients. MBBI offers educational meetings, conferences and events to help members achieve and maintain the highest levels of professional standards and qualifications.

Over the six-year fundraising partnership, MBBI and Child’s Voice have generated $47,400 to benefit children with hearing loss as they learn to listen and to speak.  Programs at Child’s Voice support children from just a few weeks old through 8 years of age, who reside across the greater metropolitan Chicago area.

During the dinner portion of the event, attendees heard from Haley Drucker, a Child’s Voice alumna, about what attending the school meant to her.
