We are thrilled to announce the 2019 Mr. Central Florida winner, Jim Sidou of Saddle Creek Logistics Services! Jim raised over $38,000 for the Center, well exceeding the $5,000 goal set for the contestants. Runners up for the titles were Don Bosko of Beef ‘O’ Brady’s and Trey Chapman of Lakeland Volkswagen. Both also raised over $30,000. 8 additional contestants raised over $5,000 each. This year’s event was yet another record breaking year!
The Kiwanis Club of Lakeland has selected the Center to receive a grant for iPads in our Speech-Language Pathology Department. Our seven speech-language pathologists use iPads regularly in our speech-language therapy sessions for a number of reasons. The children of today are growing up as “digital natives” as technology has been a part of their lives from day one. For them, the iPad is familiar technology so they take to it naturally. In some cases, we are able to present new/different information to patients and in other cases, we are presenting the same materials we have previously used but are able to present them in a new way that keeps our patients engaged and motivated.
Thank you, Kiwanis for your amazing support of the Center and our patients!
We are humbled and honored to announce that an anonymous donor will provide matching funds up to $45,000. With 200 children on our speech & language waiting list, the purpose of this generous match is to secure a speech-language pathologist position and provide care for more children.
