NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The Summit Speech School, which teaches deaf and hard of hearing children to listen and speak for themselves, so they can succeed as part of the hearing world, will host its 27th Annual 'Spring Benefit' April 4.

The 'Spring Benefit' is actually two events in one day, with a 10 a.m. luncheon presentation and 6 p.m. dinner party, both of which will be held at Fiddler's Elbow Country Club in Bedminster. After the luncheon concludes, the evening dinner party will kick-off with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dinner, and music. All proceeds benefit the School’s programs and services.

The event is chaired by parent Randi Silverstein, with the evening's dinner including both silent and ticket auctions, a grand raffle with cash prizes, a gourmet chocolate sale, and a wine pull.

The 'Spring Benefit' started as a flower show 27 years ago. “We are so excited to be ‘going back to our roots’ at this year’s luncheon by featuring a floral design presentation by botanist and floral designer Samantha Rothman, owner of Fairview Farm and Flowers. It’s very special to be honoring our beginnings at this year’s Benefit,” said Silverstein.

Summit Speech School’s young children often enter the School at a challenging time in their lives, with some only able to say a few words, Summit Speech School is a place where children overcome longstanding obstacles and begin to blossom and grow into active participants in the speaking world.

A big part of the transformation in Summit Speech School students is due to the profound dedication of the School’s staff. This year, the Spring Benefit will honor Ellen Hansen, Summit Speech School’s beloved pediatric audiologist, and feature Summit Speech School alumna Becca Von Lange.

Founded in 1967, Summit Speech School works with children and their families, from infancy through high school, to develop skills in listening, learning, and communicating, building on the student’s own hearing ability supplemented with modern technology such as hearing aids and cochlear implants.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks. Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) are a major reason why the S&P 500 rallied so much in 2017. Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
