Celebrities Pitch for Starkey

Some celebrities are at one of the largest live music festivals in the world to talk about hearing loss. Verne Troyer, better known as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies and Erik Estrada, known for his role as Ponch in the TV series CHIPs and Lou Ferrigno, known for his role as the Hulk have come to the South by Southwest conference in Austin on behalf of the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which hopes to give away one million hearing aids over the next decade. The foundation is co-sponsoring a SXSW event and handing out free earplugs to concert-goers.

Ferrigno has worn a hearing aid for many years and Troyer’s father also has hearing loss. You can find out more at Starkey's site.
