(REVISED) Deaf and Hard of Hearing Valentine's Day Announcement- Sat. Feb 11 in Pasadena, CA

From: Dhhreport (WRAD) - Jan 27, 2006

Revised on January 27, 2006

WRAD, Inc. is proud to present...


A romantic Valentine's Day Luncheon to celebrate our love for our spouses and partners, for our friends and acquaintances, for our deaf and hard of hearing community celebrities and colleagues, and for the community of non-communication disabled persons and students who have assisted and helped us with their love and support.

Saturday February 11, 2006, 11:30-3:30pm, on the romantic outside patio of the Holly Street Bar and Grill, 175 East Holly Street, Pasadena, California 91103.

Holly Street Bar and Grill is a historic landmark in Old Pasadena that marries old world charm with contemporary undertones. The courtyard looks like a small European town. The interior is uncluttered with contemporary art and luxurious seating -- a perfect location for our celebration of love and romance for Valentine's Day! This is a private event -- the restaurant will be closed to the public during our Celebration of Love Valentine's Day Luncheon.

Valentine's Day is a celebration day of love, romance and kind, gentle hearts. The deaf and hard of hearing community is well known for our love of others, for our wonderful hugs, and our communication form of signing that can express emotions that words alone cannot express! Valentine's Day is a time for all of us to share our love with each other!

To help us celebrate love in all of its many forms, we are honored to be assisted by CJ Jones, one of the most loving and caring celebrities in the deaf community, as our Master of Ceremonies.

Our resident "love and romance expert," Patrick Seamans, Ph.D., a born deaf community member raised and educated in France, the nation of love and romance, and in Paris, the international city of love and romance, will present information about Valentine's Day.

We all love great food! We will have a truly romantic gourmet luncheon of Grilled Chicken Breast in a Whole Grain Mustard Cognac Sauce, with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and seasonal Vegetables. Unlimited baskets of crusty bread and butter. Unlimited coffee, iced tea and soft drinks. And, an even more romantic Vanilla Gelato dessert! [Because we also love Vegetarians... let us know if you want a vegetarian pasta plate instead of chicken, when you make your reservations].

For our love of rhythms and music, we will have the wonderful, caring deaf professional DJ, Joe McRoberts, and entertainment by incredible breakdancing performers.

And for our love of the visual arts -- bring your own handmade Valentine Card or artwork! We will all vote for the best artistic expression of love and romance, with PRIZES awarded!

Plus other surprises!

Don't miss this event! This is the one time in the whole year for celebrating love and romance with the people you love, and with your friends and acquaintances. Bring your friends and family members, as this event is to celebrate love in all forms, and in all ways, using all kinds of communication.
