September 15, 2007: Black-Tie Gala and Auction Fundraiser

Indy race team member and CI user Jaki Scheckter was the featured special guest and award presented at the GOHF's black-tie gala and auction fundraiser, "Helping People Hear." The highlight of the night occurred when one-year-old Daniel Marshall, who was identified at birth with profound hearing loss, was presented with a “bionic ear” (cochlear implant) donation from the GOHF in partnership with US-based cochlear implant manufacturer Advanced Bionics. The award was presented by Mr. Scheckter. Daniel underwent surgery in autumn 2007. The gala realized 68% profit, all to benefit Daniel and future CI recipients.

“Advanced Bionics and funds raised at this event provide us with an opportunity to allow one more child to hear his mother say ‘I love you’,” said Eileen Jones, president and founder of GOHF. “For that we cannot thank our supporters enough.”
