Helen Sorto Zurita, a leading activist in the Manassas/Prince William community, will be honored on Saturday, July 28, for her leadership in the successful movement that resulted in residents of East End Mobile Home Park in Manassas being able to stay in their homes.

State Senator Jeremy McPike and Delegate Lee Carter will lead the ceremony in Zurita’s honor at 11:30 a.m. at Addy’s Bar and Grill located at 10820 Balls Ford Rd. Manassas VA 20109, with the presentation of Joint Resolution 194 by the Virginia House of Delegates and Senate.

HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION # 194 Commending Helen Sorto Zurita

Helen also has a story of her own.  She was born deaf and is now struggling to raise funds for much needed hearing aids. Here is her story in her words:

“I was born deaf. Doctors at Buffalo Children’s Hospital were able to rebuild my drums with plastic grafts. From 1972 to 1981, I endured 37 operations. In the last year I have noticed my hearing fluctuate. I now have a moderate hearing loss, which will only get worse if I don’t wear hearing aids. Reconstruction surgery is not recommended at my age because there is no promise of what level of hearing I will come out with if any. It’s urgent to get these hearing aids for both ears. Unfortunately, my health insurance does not cover the cost of hearing aids.”

A poker tournament to raise funds to purchase hearing aids for Helen will take place at noon on Saturday, July 28, immediately following her award ceremony at Addy’s Bar & Grill

<> All are invited to attend to honor Helen and to help get her the hearing aids she needs.
