On Friday March 2, the members of the Adelphi University American Sign Language (ASL) Club hosted a charity gala to raise awareness and money for Lead-K.

The Language Equality & Acquisition for Deaf Kids, Lead-K, is a civil rights movement aiming to further the initiative for promoting language equality and acquisition to ensure that Deaf children are Kindergarten-ready.

The organization works with the Nyle DiMarco Foundation;  DiMarco is a deaf model who’s won ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

The ASL Gala offered raffles and auctions donated by local Williston Park restaurants and shops, live performances geared toward the deaf, dancing, refreshments and fun for everyone.
