Advocates for Deaf Education, made up of parents of hearing-impaired children, raised $20,000 in the organization's third annual charity golf event June 9 at Hamilton Elks Golf Club.

Founders of the group - Steve Burns, Tom Garriga, Mike Gartner and Bob Murphy - helped get 160 golfers for the event.

The event also included a dinner, raffle and silent auction. Music was provided by Five Hundy By Midnight.

Jill Gartner, mother of Haley Gartner, 11, a hearing-impaired child, said Advocates for Deaf Education Foundation provides financial support to families and organizations that educate and enable hearing impaired children to achieve their fullest potential.

Grants are awarded to help defray the cost of digital hearing aids, FM systems, cochlear implants, private tuition and educational programs for hearing impaired children up to age 18.
