The Latest from The CARE Project
Hi everyone……thanks for being such strong supporters of The CARE Project and its work over the years.
We are working hard on our upcoming annual fundraiser set for September 20, 2014 in Wilmington, NC, at the beautiful new Union Station Building in downtown overlooking the Cape Fear River, the U.S.S. North Carolina and what proves to be a lovely sunset!!! This year we will be featuring amazing cuisine from restaurants across the area and 5 featured chefs will be present to serve and chat about specialty creations from individual stations Heyfor our guests. Jack Jack 180 will be the featured band for the evening!
The CARE Project will have a very special guest to honor during the Gala as well. Justin LeBlanc and his family will join us. Justin is deaf, wears a cochlear implant and utilizes both spoken and signed communication. He grew up in Raleigh and is currently a professor at NC State University. Justin rose to national prominence this past year as a finalist on the TV show Project Runway as a designer. He will be presented with the annual CARE Project Award for Resilience!!
The funds raised support our family retreats and services which brings many families together for counseling, education and fellowship. The CARE Project is becoming well-known in North Carolina and across the country as “the family retreat experts”!!! None of these opportunities would be possible without the strong support of people and businesses like each and everyone of you!
Please join us on September 20 for a fantastic weekend in Wilmington, NC!!!

I am very happy to share the exciting news that the Oticon Foundation based in Denmark has approved the grant proposal submitted by The CARE Project (David Yoder and Myself). The official letter is dated May 5, 2014. My contact in Denmark phoned me from Copenhagen this morning to share with me the good news!
The CARE Project proposal outlines a plan to take TCP to 10 new states in the U.S. I strategically partnered with the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management to initiate an application and selection process to identify states with interest in participating in the expansion project.
This is the biggest award ever received by TCP and I am thrilled to share this news with each and every one of you!
