Come Bet On Our Future!

The Learning Center for the Deaf is excited to announce its Spring Fundraising Event. We will host a Casino Night on our Framingham campus on May 18th, 2023.

Annually, TLC service more than 2,000 students, families and individuals who identify as Deaf or Hard of Hearing. 

We recently completed our new strategic plan and, over the next three years, we are committed to focusing on a number of organizational objectives. Using our strengths and accomplishments over the past 50+ years, we will continue to build TLC as a Center of Excellence for Deaf education and services to ensure that all deaf and hard of hearing children and adults thrive by having the knowledge, opportunity and power to design the future of their choice. 

  • Sustainability: Despite national staffing shortages and post-pandemic setbacks, TLC is committed to remaining a financially viable organization which sets intentional goals for program growth;
  • Readiness: We are prioritizing efficient and engaging systems of processes which support data-driven decision making;
  • Leadership: Committed to people over process, we continue to invest in our staff and leadership growth opportunities;
  • Inclusivity: TLC remains steadfast in maintaining a culture of equity, inclusion and belonging, and an environment where Deaf culture is understood and respected, and where American Sign Language is the predominant medium used.

We hope you will join this fun evening. With every roll of the dice or flip of the cards, you are joining our mission to provide opportunity, knowledge and power. With your support, our work is possible. 

About the Event

Our evening will feature a variety of casino game tables. Each general admission ticket will come with 500 game chips to get you started, and everyone has the opportunity to purchase additional play chips to keep the party going! Place your bets at some of the most popular games, including Black Jack, Big Wheel and Poker. While the chips are purchased as part of our fundraiser, no actual money is exchanged or lost at the tables. However, the players with the largest amount of chips at the end of the evening will win prizes!

In addition to the games, we will be hosting a virtual Silent Auction, powered by Ready, Set, Auction. Individual items, autographed memorabilia, gift baskets and gift certificates are a wonderful way to show your support, and promote your business or company! Our silent auction will be available online, easily accessed through your mobile phone, for placing your bids, and setting maximum limits so you won't be outbid too quickly!

Our Spring Fundraiser will also be the setting for the announcement of TLC's annual Warren Schwab Memorial Award, which recognizes an individual's efforts to advance Deaf education, advocacy and programs.
