AmpliVox Donation Supports Austin HS '50s Weekend Gala Reunion




AmpliVox recently provided sound reinforcement to the Austin High School Chicago '50s REUNION Week-End that was held on OCT. 1-3 at the Drury Lane Theatre Complex & the CHICAGO HILTON Oak Brook Suites hotel.

Operated by the Chicago Public Schools, Austin opened in 1876[5] as a public 4–year high school located in the Austin neighborhood in Chicago and was named in honor of Henry W. Austin, a Chicago real estate developer.

During the mid-twentieth century, Austin High was considered one of the best high schools in the Chicago area. The Austin 50's Reunion offered a week-end of fun, food, music, memories and renewing friendships.



The Reunion weekend began on Friday with a welcoming reception and an elegant sit-down dinner. Saturday was spent on afternoon activities and evening attendees enjoyed a Chicago style '50s party, celebrating the great years that they spent at Austin.

There were many surprises and gifts for everyone, including a beautiful four-color commemorative program book. Attendees visited an Austin memorabilia area containing yearbooks from every year of the 'fifties, allowing alumi to see themselves as a freshman and a senior. Sunday concluded with a "Farewell Breakfast" at The HILTON Oak Brook Suites hotel.


AmpliVox’s powerful and versatile B9254 sound system was donated to support the event, playing music, making announcements and presentations clearly to all in attendance.

The B9254 package includes the AmpliVox SW925 Digital Audio Travel Partner PA, an all-in-one system that amplifies sound from microphones, streaming devices, and other audio inputs.

The B9254 PA System is a great tool to play the greatest hits of your graduation year, plus some great nostalgic sound bites from that era -- from the news and sports, clips from the top movies and TV shows of the year, even highlights from some of the year's great old commercials.

Think Pink! October Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention




Every October, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by breast cancer.


Founded in 2010 and offered year round, AmpliVox’s Pink Podium Promise donates special pink versions our Pinnacle Podiums to licensed or certified breast cancer awareness organizations to help their voices be heard.

The Pink Podiums were distributed to hundreds of cancer society chapters, foundations, hospitals and local governments.

"AmpliVox products are designed to make people look good and sound good," said AmpliVox CEO Don Roth.

The Pink Podium presents a dramatic visual reinforcement of the color that has come to be associated with breast cancer awareness and prevention.



There is no sure way to prevent breast cancer. But there are things you can do that might lower your risk. Many risk factors are beyond your control, such as being born female and getting older. But other risk factors can be changed and may lower your risk.

The food you eat, the substances you’re exposed to, and your level of physical activity impact your body’s production and function of hormones, inflammatory substances and immune factors that have the power to promote… or prevent cancer.


Ways to Prevent Breast Cancer
The following is a list that may help keep you from developing breast cancer. It is not a guarantee that you won't get breast cancer. However, by following these strategies you may lower your odds of getting breast cancer and you may also improve your overall health.


Screening
Remember to get annual mammograms and clinical breast exams beginning at 40.
Exercise
Engage in moderately intense physical activity for at least 30 minutes on 5 days or more.
Nutrition
Eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables, limiting processed and red meats. Choose whole grains.


Weight
Women who gained 20 pounds or more as an adult are 40 percent more likely to develop breast cancer.
Alcohol
Drinking even small amounts of alcohol is linked with an increased risk of breast cancer in women.
Smoking
Smoking is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer in younger, premenopausal women.


Genetic
About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are thought to be hereditary, caused by abnormal genes.
Breast-feed
Breast-feeding might play a role, the longer you breast-feed, the greater the protective effect.
MHT
Menopausal Hormone Therapy
(MHT) studies have concluded that the risks often outweigh the benefits.
