Miami Fundraiser

Singer Dionne Warwick and 1995 Miss America Heather Whitestone were among those taking part in last night’s private fundraiser for The Barton G. Kids Hear Now Foundation in Miami. The nonprofit organization helps hearing-challenged children and their families. The event was planned by the man behind dozens of charity extravaganzas - Barton G. Weiss. His daughter was born profoundly deaf. He's funding the foundation with a six-figure gift and plans to start a Cochlear Implant Family Resource Center at the University of Miami.
