Miracle-Ear tourney set to begin Friday

JOHNSTOWN – Frasier Enterprises of Johnstown, owns and operates more than 200 Miracle-Ear centers nationwide. As a part of the hearing solution franchise, they actively support the Miracle-Ear Foundation, providing underprivileged children and adults with hearing instruments. The sixth annual Miracle-Ear Golf Tournament at Hales Mills Country Club, begins Friday to raise money to benefit the Miracle-Ear Foundation.

Frasier Enterprises owner Rick Frasier and his business partners have made a commitment to support the Miracle-Ear Foundation, a Minneapolis-based non-profit organization.

Established in 1990, the Miracle-Ear Foundation was created to enhance the life experiences of families and individuals of limited means through the gift of sound.

To date, the Miracle-Ear Foundation, working with Miracle-Ear centers across the country, has donated more than 6,500 hearing aids to over 4,100 individuals nationwide, according to a news release.

“We know that hearing loss lowers the quality of life for individuals at any age,” Frasier said in the release. “When hearing loss goes undetected, it can lead to social isolation and strained relationships. That’s why we host a golf tournament to raise money for a cause that will enhance the lives of others within our community.”

The annual golf tournament started six years ago with 34 teams. Today, the tournament has expanded to 64 teams and 128 participants. In addition to local golfers, Miracle-Ear franchisees from across the country are traveling to Johnstown to participate in the tournament and support the Miracle-Ear Foundation. Last year, more than $10,000 was donated to the Miracle-Ear Foundation supporting many in need in the Johnstown community.
