The Corpus Christi Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center hosted it's annual fundraiser Tuesday night called "A Night of Heroes." The event was held at the Omni Bayfront. Several community members were honored for their support of the center. There was a silent auction, as well as a motivational speech by Paralympic Ski Racer and Comedian, Josh Sundquist.

"I'm giving a speech about my life, about how I lost my leg to cancer at a young age and became a ski racer and hopefully relating that story of overcoming adversity to some of the work that the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center does in this community," said Sundquist.

Proceeds from the gala support programs and services provided by the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center.
