Thanks for joining us at CID OUT LOUD! 2017

Last year’s event was held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. Together, we raised more than $245,000 to bring life-changing education to children who are deaf and hard of hearing.

Thank you to our sponsors, guests, committee and other volunteers — and to last year’s fabulous chairs, Karen and Terry Leebolt, Shelby Reneski and Liz Buchman. Thank you for contributing your time and talent to create this successful event.
