Bayside resident Joanie Achs is dedicated to helping make her community a better place. And as a mother, she also understands the importance of providing children with the tools and skills they need to succeed in school, and in life. That’s part of the reason she decided to chair the 6th Annual Gardens Luncheon to benefit the Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, taking place at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin on Thursday, April 23.
The Center is a unique resource in Wisconsin that provides a wide range of programs and services to help children and adults who are dealing with the challenges of hearing loss. Says Achs, “The Center helps children with hearing loss achieve their full potential by providing them with the language and communication skills they need to succeed. It is also a critical resource for adults who are struggling with hearing loss issues. It’s so important for individuals in the community to actively support organizations like the Center, because the work that these nonprofits do really benefits us all in the end.”
This year’s Gardens Luncheon is themed “Celebrating Our Heritage,” and will feature guest speaker Betty Adelman, owner of Heritage Flower Farm, who will share intriguing stories of some of our most loved heirloom plants and how to successfully integrate them into your contemporary home garden or landscape. With the renewed interest in home gardening, Ms. Adelman’s presentation is sure to inspire even novice gardeners to get out and start planting these hardy and usually low maintenance heirloom plants. Joyce Garbaciak of WISN-TV will be the event emcee.
In addition to a light lunch, silent auction and networking opportunities, the Gardens Luncheon will also feature one-of-a-kind centerpieces with pottery created by local artisans from The Potter’s Shop and Waukesha Clay Art Guild, and flower designs courtesy of students from the Milwaukee School of Flower Design.
Tickets to the Gardens Luncheon are $65 each and can be purchased online at www.cdhh.org or by calling 414-604-2200. The luncheon will take place at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin, 813 E. Kilbourn, Milwaukee, from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM on Thursday, April 23.
The Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is located at 10243 W. National Avenue in West Allis and has been serving children and adults with hearing loss for more than 80 years. It offers a full range of services and technologies to enhance the quality of life of individuals with hearing loss – from infants to the elderly.
