Geneva Lions Club President Donates to Charity

 Posted on April 12, 2013 in In the News


Imagine growing up physically healthy, except unable to hear the world around you. The desire to learn, play sports and interact with other people through sound is strong, and there is a hearing device that can make that possible. Many insurance companies don't cover the $2,500 that it costs for a hearing device, and many are left without the chance to hear. Fortunately, a young girl has decided to help young deaf girls; a local community organization and individual have jumped in to support.

Sports lover Eliza Peters was born legally deaf in one ear and partially deaf in the other. Her family realized how much she wanted to be able to hear. After her father, John, arranged for her to have a surprise visit from ESPN’s Sarah Spain, Eliza decided that she wanted to help other deaf girls afford a hearing aid. Sarah Spain and Eliza Peters began a great friendship, and have created "Hear the Cheers", a charity. The charity, that is partnered with Chicago Hearing Society, is trying to raise $10,000 to provide funds to other girls whose families cannot afford hearing aids.

Attorney Douglas B. Warlick of Geneva, Illinois, practices many types of family law. He has been part of the community since 1981. His heart and passion for others is proven by his dedication to helping and serving through the Geneva Lions Club and other personal ambitions. When he heard Eliza Peters' story, he was eager to support her cause by donating $500 to the “Hear the Cheers” charity foundation. By supporting the charity, Attorney Doug Warlick is helping the foundation get closer to its $10,000 goal to help other deaf/hard of hearing girls.

It is important, especially in family law, to not only be involved in the legal community, but also in the local community. If you're looking for a caring, compassionate family law attorney, contact the Law Office of Douglas B. Warlick in Geneva, IL today.
