The Walker Scottish Rite Clinic held its 18th Annual KidTalk Celebration Gala, Puttin’ on the Ritz, Saturday November 3, 2012. Event was held at Logan College of Chiropractic where SGIG Robert Cockerham, honored guests SGIG Jim Cole (VA) and SGIG William Brunt (NC), and over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of glitz and glamour. The dinner Auction exuded charm with live music, hors d’oeuvres, and open bar a formal dinner, and an exciting auction. Live auction items included vacation getaways, dining experiences, sporting memorabilia, jewelry, and the most adorable “teddy-bear” cock-a-poo puppy. The silent auction encompassed items that appeal to every pastime and interest.

Special entertainment featured mistress of ceremonies Ivy Hartman of STL TV, Avery and Brooks Hayden and the Hayden Family. Twins, Brooks and Avery have been part of the Clinic family for almost three years. They entered care in November 2009, when their mother brought them in for a speech and language screening. Brooks is talkative and energetic and is entertaining to have in therapy. After a break in care, Avery re-entered therapy in March 2012 to work on some of her speech sounds. Avery is inquisitive and talkative and also a joy to have as a client. The evening had something to offer all, and those who attended took home a special gift of thanks.

A heartfelt thank you is extended to our Platinum Sponsors, Delmar Gardens and The Kellogg Family, Gold Sponsors, Carr Lane Manufacturing and Maryville University, and Silver Sponsors, Adams Place Retirement Community, Missouri DeMolay and Moolah Temple Guides Bingo Fund. Finally, a special thank you to Event Chair, Janice Sheets and husband Jim, for their dedication and support in achieving an overwhelming successful evening. The Gala grossed over $104,000 to support the FREE speech and language therapy services provided to children two to six-year old in the greater St. Louis area at the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic.

The Walker Scottish Rite Clinic for Childhood Language Disorders, a RiteCare Clinic serving hundreds of children annually in the Valley of St. Louis, is a 501c3 Charity and provides free professional therapy to children 2 to 6 years of age at absolutely no cost to their families.

RiteCare Benefit Golf Outing Honoring Ill Bro. Earl E. Walker

In honor of a man that time will never forget, we cordially invite you to the 1st Annual Earl E. Walker Memorial Golf Outing to benefit the Walker Scottish Rite Clinic for Childhood Language Disorders. The Earl E. Walker Memorial Golf Outing will be Wed. June 20, 2012 at Tapawingo Golf Club in Sunset Hills. This 4-man Scramble will have a shotgun start at 11 a.m. and includes delicious lunch, fabulous dinner & drinks, premium giveaways as well as many other amenities.

The Walker Scottish Rite Clinic is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity providing long-term therapy to children ages 2 to 6 years old with speech and language disorders and has been a valuable St. Louis area resource for parents of children with communication challenges for over 24 years and currently serves children in 6 key Eastern Missouri locations including locations in St. Louis, Elsberry, Union and Crystal City. Clinic services include screenings, evaluations, individual and group therapy, audiological evaluations, and parent training. All professional services are provided free to the children.

Featured at this Earl E. Walker Memorial Golf Outing will be Isaiah, who is currently receiving therapeutic services at the Clinic. Isaiah enrolled at the Clinic when he was 2 1/2 years old and started in the Clinic’s KidTalk Prep therapy program, tailored for the young non-talker. Isaiah was limited to only producing sounds and sign language and not using words. After the intensive 12 week Prep program, Isaiah began pronouncing single words. Isaiah then continued into individual therapy and, after 11 months in the program has progressed to 3 word sentences. Isaiah’s ability to communicate has come through hard work and dedication by Isaiah himself, his family and his Clinic therapist, Margaret. A portion of Isaiah’s – and every child’s – care at the Clinic is funded by this Benefit Golf Outing.
