We're Doing It Again

by Martin Jurek, Campbell River Hearing Clinic

Our donation to last year’s Rotary TV Auction attracted the event’s highest bid. This year we are once again donating a complete hearing package valued at $6,400.

What we’re offering are the most advanced hearing instruments available.  We’re also including a wireless package that connects to the wearer’s TV, phone, computer or iPad.

The nearly invisible hearing aids, come with a two-year warranty and a one-year supply of batteries. Just as important – if not more so – as the device itself, though, is the custom set-up, unlimited fine-tuning and Listening and Communication Enhancement (LACE) therapy that are also included with the package.

I will personally help the winner of this package to choose the appropriate style, color and accessories to match their hearing needs and lifestyle. The winner will, like every one of our clients, gets free lifetime follow-up appointments, including fittings, cleaning, maintenance and adjustments due to hearing change.

The hearing package is up for bid now with no reserve along with other items in the Campbell River Rotary Club’s annual auction. Funds raised will go toward connecting the existing hiking trails at Elk Falls with a new suspension bridge slated for completion next summer. Last year, our donation sold for $4,900, a significant savings for the winning bidder that nonetheless represented nearly five per cent of the auction’s fundraising total of $95,000.

Now, I admit, the donation is partly motivated by self-interest.

Jana and I live with our family in Campbell River, so we benefit every time Rotary embarks upon a community project.  I have immense respect for Rotary, and this is our small way of thanking them for making Campbell River so great.

The 39th Annual Rotary TV Auction takes place November 29 and 30 on Shaw Cable, with online pre-bidding at www.rotarytvauction.com

I encourage anyone considering bidding on the hearing package to go to www.rotarytvauction.com and bid now.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call me at 250-914-3200 or come and see me at our office at 780 - D 13th Avenue, kitty-corner from Ricky's Restaurant. I look forward to working with the winner.

Happy bidding.
