Foundation Board Visits the 17th Annual Crystal Charity Ball Cochlear Implant Camp

On July 25, 2012, members of the Callier board traveled together to visit the 17th Annual Crystal Charity Ball Cochlear Implant Camp held at Rock Creek Ranch in McKinney, Texas. The half-day trip is a board tradition dating back to the earliest years of this unique camp. Observing first-hand the miracle of children who hear with this life changing device is a true inspiration.
