The Widows Sons Big Easy is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit whose Mission is to promote Freemasonry within the motorcycling community and introduce motorcycling to our non-riding Masonic Brethren while encouraging charity, benevolence and education. The Widows Sons Big Easy Chapter has chosen the Masonic Learning Center of Louisiana, Inc. Dyslexia Training Center as our 2019 charitable focus.
A staggering 5 to 15 percent of Americans—14.5 to 43.5 million children and adults—have dyslexia, a learning disability that makes it difficult to read, write, and spell, no matter how hard the person tries or how intelligent he or she is.
The Dyslexia Training Program is a multi-sensory program of instruction that emphasizes phonics and is taught by a teacher/facilitator to classes of limited size using a number of teaching aids including video recordings, workbooks, writing frames, linkage paper, three-dimensional letters, flash cards, wall charts, dictionaries, and other items.
The average cost per student in a training period is $2,368. Please note that services are provided to the student at ZERO COST to the parent or guardian for testing, materials, or instruction.
Our first planned fundraiser this year for the Masonic Learning Center of Louisiana, Inc. Dyslexia Training Center is Cruising for the Cause! Any Widows Sons Big Easy Chapter Member can sell you one of the 1,000 available tickets for $10 per ticket for a chance to win a Carnival Cruise Line voucher for $1,200!
