SARAH Chester of Wembley Downs knows first hand how money raised at the annual Artitude Amplified for Telethon Speech and Hearing positively impacts families.

“We would have hid in a dark cupboard if not for Telethon Speech and Hearing,” the mum of seven said.

Her second youngest son Isaac is five and has attended the Wembley facility since three-year-old kindy.

“The support this program provides is next to none,” she said.

“It’s made a different to how he processes information and has developed his language skills but it’s mostly contributed to his social skills.”

Ms Chester is helping organise the 18th Artitude Amplified with Cottesloe resident and social media influencer Melissa Graham, who has recently returned to Perth after 10 years in Singapore.

“My mum’s youngest brother attended Telethon Speech and Hearing so we’ve always had that affiliation,” she said.

Paul Gullotti of Gullotti Galleries has returned to curate an intimate collection of unique and rare art from international and national artists, including Los Angeles-based artist Mr. Brainwash, whose street art and contemporary pieces are highly sought after.

The Museum Collection on the night will also feature Australian artists such as Lucks, Catherine Christie, Janine Daddo, Becky Blair and Wendy Arnold while West Australian talent Drew Straker and sculptor April Pine will feature as part of the New Works, New Faces collection.
