Ron Lash crowned the 2017 Mr. Central Florida!

On October 12th, Central Florida Speech & Hearing Center held its 5th annual Mr. Central Florida event at the Sun-N-Fun Florida Air Museum. This year, 33 Community Champions competed for the title by seeking votes and sponsors to raise money for the Center.

Mr. Ron Lash from Mosaic earned the title of 2017 Mr. Central Florida with over 24,000 votes! 

1st Runner-up was Bart Allen from Peterson and Myers

2nd Runner-up was Jared Diveley from Lakeland Volkswagen. 

This was a record breaking year of not only reaching the goal of $75,000 but . . . exceeding it! Together the contestants raised over $140,000! The majority of the children treated at the Center are underinsured and 92% require subsidized funding. The money raised by these men will provide care for these children.
