In the spirit of goodwill and giving back to the community, former Tulane star and NBA standout John “Hot Rod” Williams, the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) and partner EarQ will be presenting 87-year old New Orleans native and hurricane survivor Mrs. Georgiana Brunet with a pair of new hearing devices this Monday, September 24th.
The growing EarQ wasn't complacent with its old headquarters facilities, which consisted of about 4,000 square feet of space leased in buildings Keller owns at 1900 and 1903 W. Genesee St. So the firm purchased a 13,000-square-foot building at 701 Erie Blvd. W. in Syracuse and moved its 35 employees there on Aug. 10.
The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) welcomes EarQ, a national network of hearing healthcare professionals, to provide an education and hearing aid discount program for active and retired members of the NFLPA and their families.
