Tue, 06/04/2013

LAWRENCE — Anyone with vinyl records, CDs, gently used audio equipment or musical instruments gathering dust in their homes is encouraged to consider donating them to the University of Kansas Audio-Reader Network, a local nonprofit that serves the blind, visually impaired and print-disabled.

Donated goods will be featured in Audio-Reader’s annual benefit sale, For Your EARS Only, which will take place Sept. 13-14 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. The event is attended by hundreds of music lovers from surrounding areas, and the most popular items are rock 'n' roll records and vintage or modern stereo equipment.

Proceeds from For Your EARS Only help Audio-Reader provide free reading and information services for those who cannot read for themselves.

Donations can be brought to Audio-Reader, located at 1120 W. 11th St., or to Kief’s Audio/Video, 2429 Iowa St. Those in the Kansas City area can take their donations to Alphapointe Associate for the Blind (7501 Prospect Ave.) KCUR in Kansas City (4825 Troost St., Suite 202) will accept donations during business hours starting in July.

For more information about donating items to For Your Ears Only, call 785-864-4600 or visit the Audio-Reader website.
