MBBI RAISES THOUSANDS AT GOLF TOURNAMENT TO BENEFIT CHILDREN WITH HEARING LOSS
On Tuesday, July 11, Child’s Voice celebrated their fourth year as the charity of choice for MBBI’s Golf Tournament. At the beautiful Hawk’s View Golf Course in Lake Geneva, Wis., over 130 golfers gathered to golf, network, and change the lives of children with hearing loss.
Over the past four years, the MBBI Golf Tournament has raised over $20,000 in support of Child’s Voice programs, directly impacting children with hearing loss as they learn to listen, to speak, and to succeed.
“We are excited for the continued relationship between Child’s Voice and MBBI,” shared Tom Meyers of CenTrust Bank and MBBI President. “We look forward to further collaboration to help these kids in need.”
Child’s Voice provides volunteers to the Tournament to aid in the fundraising that happens at the Tournament from mulligans, Hole in One chances and more. Alumni from Child’s Voice also volunteer and share their experiences with the golfers during the dinner.

“Our students are inspiring, hearing from our graduates is inspiring, but what is so truly exciting is that through these golfers generosity, children’s lives are nged,” said Dr. Michele Wilkins, Executive Director of Child’s Voice. “What started as a simple volunteering event has blossomed into a full, year-round partnership. We are incredibly grateful to MBBI and look forward to working with them for years to come.”
