About Us

We are so excited to have our 4th annual Speakeasy Gala to support and celebrate teaching deaf and hard of hearing children to listen and speak at The Luke Lee Listening, Language and Learning Lab (The”L”) at Marshall University. Each year the event raises almost $20,000 to help The L continue to provide services for deaf and hard of hearing children in West Virginia and equip them to achieve listening and spoken language outcomes.

At The Speakeasy Gala, guests relive the days of the “Roaring 20’s” while dressing in flapper dresses and dancing the night away. Participants enjoy jazz music, a variety of silent auction items, photo booth and delicious food and drinks by the Guyan Country Club.

The 2018 Presenting sponsor was Touma Hearing Centers. 2018 Gold Sponsors included Touma Hearing Centers and Valley Health, Silver Sponsors included Dr. Thomas Jung and Star Furniture along with several Friends of Luke Lee supporters.

The 2019 Keynote Speaker will be Tonya Ferguson. Tonya has bilateral cochlear implants and is the Career Technical Director of Barbour County Schools and Assistant Principal for Philip Barbour High School. We will also be presenting The Luke Lee Legacy Award.

The Luke Lee Listening, Language, and Learning Lab

The Luke Lee Listening, Language and Learning Lab at Marshall University, also known as “The L”, was founded in 2006 as the first preschool program in West Virginia providing listening and spoken language outcomes to children with hearing loss. We provide services to children from infants to toddlers to preschoolers to school-age to achieve a listening and spoken language outcome and allow them to mainstream into their home schools with age-level listening and spoken language skills to communicate with their hearing aged peers.

We would also like to encourage you to learn more by visiting the Luke Lee Listening, Language and Learning Lab website at Marshall University. or follow The “L” on facebook
