Imagine attending your brother’s wedding or your mother’s funeral
and not being able to understand a thing that took place because
it is all spoken, and you can’t hear.
Imagine having to worry about the costs of interpreters when you may
be having a hard time meeting the expenses of a wedding or a funeral.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does not cover interpreter expenses
for such occasions. The Yolande Henry Community Fund provides sign language
interpreters for these important life events in Vermont and is made up entirely
of individual donations.
Please consider buying 1 or 5 raffle tickets to help keep this necessary
Fund alive! Drawing will take place LIVE on Facebook on Saturday, May 6 from
Smugglers Notch, Vermont.
Tickets will put you in drawing for all 3 prizes
(i.e., tickets cannot be bought for just one basket)
Prizes include: a Vermont
Made Basket, an Art Basket and a Vermont Getaway Weekend.
