Third-Party Fundraisers Support Center’s Hearing and Speech/Language Programs

Center for Hearing & Speech is happy to partner with volunteers who want to host third-party fundraisers to support the Center’s hearing and speech/language programs.

Two recent successful volunteer fundraisers endorsed by the Center include a Pampered Chef party and a Premier Designs Jewelry Party.  Both events were hosted by the Center’s Fundraising Committee and provided it with gifts to be included in the silent auction for its upcoming “Swinging to the Beat for Hearing & Speech” annual fundraiser on Friday, March 13.

“Having the opportunity to purchase wonderful items from Pampered Chef for your kitchen or to wear beautiful jewelry from Premier Designs and, in the process, sales that generate funds for a non-profit like the Center are a win-win for everyone,” says Jeff Tarr, Center development director. “Every little bit helps!”

Other past third-party fundraisers include a Young Friends of the Center for Hearing & Speech wine and canvas event held at a local restaurant last summer. The Center has also partnered with St. Louis Noodles & Company and Texas Roadhouse restaurants to sponsor fundraising nights where a certain percent of event sales that evening were returned to the Center.

For more information, contact Jeff Tarr at or by phone at 314-968-4710.

The Center for Hearing & Speech is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that in 2013 donated $1.75 million in speech/language, school screening and audiology services to residents of metropolitan St. Louis and surrounding communities.

It is a proud member of the United Way of Greater St. Louis and was awarded the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) 2014 TORCH Award.

The award is given to charities and businesses that “demonstrate a commitment to customer service through exceptional standards for ethical business practices,” according to the BBB.

  1. There is no such thing as an easy fundraising because not all people believe on other's mission of helping.
