Dr. Ann Stadelmaier Hearing Aid Fund

Dr. Ann Stadelmaier (1953-2006), an audiologist, and executive director of Hearing Evaluation Services of Buffalo and a Kenmore Lion passed away after a long battle with cancer in August 2006. Dr. Stadelmaier was dedicated to helping hearing-impaired individuals meet their hearing needs regardless of their ability to pay. It was a final wish of hers that a fund be established to help those in need achieve their hearing goals.

Together, with the support of the Lions Club, the fund has become an incredible asset in helping hundreds of individuals in need of hearing assistance.


The Dr. Ann Stadelmaier Hearing Aid Fund has been established to provide hearing assistance to individuals in need who cannot otherwise afford these services in Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, and Cattaraugus Counties.
