One of our long-serving freelance interpreters, Juliana Poletti, was recently involved in a serious automobile accident that resulted in a broken arm and a broken facial bone that required surgical repair. She is expected to be unable to work for a minimum of 6 - 8 weeks and her family (husband Russ and their three young daughters) depends heavily upon her income as an interpreter.
We are hosting a Soup & Salad Luncheon benefit fundraiser to help offset Julie's medical expenses and to assist with day to day living expenses. It will be held Saturday, March 9, 2013 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at the TriCity Association of the Deaf, 3520 Schust Rd., Saginaw, MI 48603. Cost will be $8.00 per adult, children 12 and under $3.00, lapsitters are free. Donations of non-perishable food items will also be accepted at the luncheon..
Should you be unable to attend, donations to Julie are appreciated. Make checks payable to Juliana Poletti, and mail them to:
