Switchboard hours at headquarters are 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.  Support services for youth and adults who are deaf-blind, their families and the professionals who serve them across the country are provided through our system of field services Please visit their website at http://www.hknc.org/.
 
The concert will feature many of the songs from the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, and the Band that performed at the July 28, 1973 Summer Jam event. The music will run non-stop from 9:30pm to 2:30am, and will feature three full sets of the Grateful Dead covered by the Electrix, a set of the Allman Brothers performed by Retro69, and songs from the Band covered by Meech and Friends. Eddie Kaercher will be performing with them as well. The schedule will be rounded out by a line dance demonstration by those crazy chicks, “Chrome Boots", who will be strutting their dancing tricks !
 
The Benefit will take place on Saturday April 5, 2008 at the Sunset Grill located at 4068 Sunrise Highway. Seaford, NY. There is a $10 minimum donation.
