Students at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev will hold a fund-raising party on Monday to benefit the MICHA organization, which dedicates itself to assisting and rehabilitating Israeli children and infants with hearing impairments.

The party, which will take place at the Fringe theater in Beersheba, is being organized by students enrolled in the university’s Keren Moshe Leadership Training Program, which promotes social and community.

Revenues collected from ticket, food and drink sales will be used by MICHA to establish a fund dedicated to helping parents purchase hearing aids for their children.

Without the headphones handed out at the party, attendees will not be able to hear the music. This decision, organizers said, was chosen to symbolically represent the hearing aids needed by the hearing impaired.

Since Thursday, the organizers have been handing out leaflets and selling tickets to the party on campus. They have also been speaking to students in order to raise awareness of MICHA Beersheba, which is the only organization of its kind operating in the South.
