Dinner, a bar, live music and a silent auction are just some of the attractions students can expect at the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) of Cal State Fullerton’s Speakeasy Gala on Nov. 17.

The gala will help raise funds for the CSUF Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic and The Center for Children Who Stutter.

“Both of those organizations provide low-cost speech and hearing services for people in the community. So we are raising funds to help them in their effort,” said NSSLHA Public Relations Chair Vanessa Silva.

The silent auction will include tickets to the Huntington Library and an event at Howl at the Moon, a bar and rentable party venue, that is valued at $500.

A health care professional from Stanford and the Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California will be the keynote speaker for the event.

“She will be talking about millennials in the health care-related field and how they can get involved in leadership,” Silva said.

NSSLHA is an organization that prepares students going into the field of communicative disorders by offering additional learning and networking opportunities.

Many of the services provided at CSUF’s Speech, Language and Hearing Clinic include voice concerns, stuttering, speech, language and cognitive issues that can result from stroke, head injury or neurological diseases. The clinic also helps with training speech pathology students.

“We’re looking for it to be an interdisciplinary opportunity for students from different health care-related fields,” Silva said.

The gala is open to all members of the campus and local community who are over the age of 18. It will be held at the Memories ballroom in Whittier at 7 p.m. with tickets priced at $80 for one or $150 for two.

“We’re hoping it will be a fun and celebratory event,” Silva said.
