The Buffalo Hearing & Speech Center Foundation will honor Ross B. Kenzie and Randolph A. Marks, who were co-chairmen of a three-year fund-raising campaign for the center's new patient care management system, at its "Speak Easy" dinner and auction Oct. 4 in the Connecticut Street Armory.

They will receive the James L. Magavern Award for outstanding service. Magavern served for 35 years on the center's board of directors.

The party has a Roaring '20s theme, starting at 6 p.m. with music by the Barbara Levy Daniels trio, a martini bar and a silent auction. Kevin O'Connell, WGRZ-TV Channel 2 meteorologist, will be host for the live auction. John T. and Susan S. Hoskins are chairmen of the dinner, which is being catered by Daffodil's restaurant.

KeyBank is the gold sponsor for the event; Iimak is silver sponsor. Tickets are $125 each and tables are $800. For information on sponsorships and tickets, call the foundation office at 885-8318, ext. 204.
