Kids Hear Now Foundation

The Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation, dedicated to helping hearing impaired children and their families find pathways to sound and speech, was officially launched at a festive evening of dining, dancing and entertainment which raised in excess of $600,000 for the new foundation and its partner in the orchestration of the event, The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. More than 700 guests of host and Kids Hear Now founder Barton G. Weiss, celebrated the launch in the Design District’s Palm Court. The palm-punctuated landscape, glowing in candlelight and starlight twinkling through the transparent ceiling, set the stage for a performance by five-time Grammy-winner Dionne Warwick as the evening’s finale.
