The Rotary Club of Vancouver's Annual Summer
On June 15th 2012, at the Burnaby Lake's Rowing Pavilion The Rotary Club of Vancouver's Annual Summer Crab Feast & Live Auction Fundraiser are inviting 200 guests to join together to help raise funds for The Vancouver Rotary Club and its' charity to raise funds for to help kids across BC and their families pay for the software upgrades and repairs needed to their cochlear implants so that they can stay in with their classmates at school, hear their friends and talk to their parents on the phone.
Please take 117 seconds to see the incredible response in this video of 2 year old Janelle Milne, being able to hear those around her that she loves, for the first time in her life:

Background of Charity Benefit: While the Government of BC is very generous in helping to pay for the initial $30k to assist these terrific kids with their initial cochlear implants so as to allow the kids to hear for the first time in their lives, not everyone in BC who requires one, receives it at the time when they need it most as the wait lists are long.
In addition, the Government does not provide for a low-income subsidy for the $7-$10k repairs & upgrades that are required for these kids' cochlear implants every 5-10 years, so as to be able to hear their teachers and continue to stay in with their regular school classes, classmates and friends, not to mention being able to hear their loving families around them.
