Young Women Raise $50,000 for Cochlear Implant

HYDE PARK, UTAH -- The Hyde Park First Ward young women have led the town in raising money to benefit resident Bonnie Jo Balls, who received a cochlear implant July 11th at the University of Utah Medical Center. Because of the surgery Balls is expected to regain normal hearing, lost more than 50 years ago when she was 4. The First Ward young women and Hyde Park residents have donated $36,000 so far, of the $50,000 in medical bills she faces. A fund-raiser held Friday, July 20th was expected to raise another $14,000 over the weekend. The fundraiser included a concert by musician Chris Carr aided by proceeds from concession sales, an arts and crafts boutique and book sale, and money raised from game booths.
