In September of 2017, our Office Manager, Amanda Pate, had the wonderful opportunity to go to China as part of a mission trip with the help of Audigy Venture Group and our hearing partners.

This mission trip allowed the team of hearing care experts to provide hearing instrument support to thousands of low income and underserved Chinese people.

While there, she was fortunate enough to work side-by-side with hearing industry veteran Bill Austin. During Amanda’s brief time there, she was blessed to be able to fit over two hundred patients with new hearing aids.  Working with children as young as four and as old as ninety was an amazing experience which she is incredibly grateful for.

Amanda’s most treasured memory of this trip was enabling a father, who for twenty years had never heard the sound of his son’s voice, to hear again.

In May of 2018 the City of Boerne Texas was fortunate enough to host the Aid the Silent 5K. Aid the Silent is a wonderful organization that helps hearing-impaired children attend camp and other projects throughout the year.

As sponsors of this event, Hill Country Hearing was able to provide outreach and support to members of the Central Texas community that struggle every day with hearing loss. Our Office Manager, Amanda Pate, and her famliy had a blast running the 5K along with other hearing-impaired athletes!
