Hello Friends

I am sending you this friendly-reminder message before we have our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Halloween Costume Ball on Friday October 28th. The location? At the Friendship Auditorium, 3201 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, California 90027. ( Near Griffith Park and Los Feliz Blvd by the Golden State Freeway #5)

Here are the highlights of the Halloween Ball that you can share with others:

1. This is our 4th Halloween Ball and we have experience to run it.
2. Our special guest will be Jerry Ferris who appeared on TV as the Bachelorette. He is a celebrity and SPRINT has donated 300 pictures for the community to get his autograph at the Ball. Jerry knows sign language as his parents are deaf.
3. Gino , the well-known deaf artist, has worked on the stage background again and he is going to dress up for Halloween- he said it is going to be his last time to help coordinate this Halloween event. He is well known for creative costumes in the past and you can see them on our WRAD website at
