Deserving Central New Yorker to Receive the Gift of Hearing for the Holidays
October 30, 2012
This November, Central New Yorkers will have the opportunity to enter the first annual Hear for the Holidays contest, in which one lucky winner will receive a free pair of hearing devices from EarQ.
“Being able to hear is such a powerful gift,” said Tammy Wood, BC-HIS, Central New York’s Director of Dispensing Operations. “In the spirit of the season, we want to extend that gift to someone in our community who truly deserves it and will serve as a positive example to encourage others to take control of their hearing health.”
To enter the contest, one must submit an essay explaining how their, or a loved one’s, life would be changed if they received hearing devices.
Participants must be 18 years or older and essays should be no longer than 300 words. The winning entry will be based on the overall quality of the essay, the nominee’s financial need and their degree of hearing loss.
Essays will be accepted between November 1st and November 30th. They can be sent via email to email@example.com or via mail to EarQ, 1900 West Genesee St., Syracuse, NY 13204.
The winning essay and hearing device recipient will be announced on December 7th. The winner will receive a complimentary hearing evaluation, custom fitting of a pair of state-of-the-art hearing devices best suited to their personal hearing needs and a lifetime of free office visits at EarQ.
More than 36 million Americans suffer from hearing loss. Left untreated, hearing loss can inhibit social interaction and a person’s ability to perform daily activities, which can lead to withdrawal, isolation, depression and increased instance of heart disease. Receiving regular hearing evaluations is a crucial step towards maintaining one’s overall health.
The EarQ group is an exclusive network of Hearing Healthcare Providers dedicated to combining the most advanced technologies available with personalized service to provide Americans of all ages who suffer from hearing loss with the best possible hearing solutions.
