September 15, 2017: Dollar-for-Dollar Match Fundraising Total for Lynne's ALS Fund
When we found out that a Go Fund Me page was created for our former dental hygienist Lynne Brown, we knew many of you would want to show your support. We thought, why not match your donation dollar for dollar?
Well, the numbers are in and we are so touched by the overwhelming response we received. Our patients' individual donations added up to $3,435. Double that with our dollar-for-dollar match and collectively, we contributed a grand total of $6,870 in support of Lynne and her family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Truly, you are the most generous patients in the world!
A letter from Lynne's family:
I WANTED TO EXPRESS TO LYNNE’S PATIENTS (AND YOURS OF COURSE) OUR SINCERE APPRECIATION FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR GO FUND ME PAGE AND THEIR WONDERFUL, HEART FELT COMMENTS REGARDING THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH LYNNE. KAILEE AND I READ EACH ONE TO HER AND SHE TRULY FELT THE EMOTION! BELIEVE ME, SHE WOULD LIKE TO BE THERE RIGHT NOW WITH YOU AND YOUR WONDERFUL PATIENTS!
ALL THE BEST,
VIC AND KAILEE
September 7, 2017: "$1 at a Time" Fundraising Total for Guide Dogs for The Blind
Way to Go Patients!
Many of you already know about our new fundraiser "$1 at a Time." Here's how it works: when you turn down our free toothbrush at the end your visit, we'll donate $1 to a local charity.
The first beneficiary that we selected was Guide Dogs for the Blind. Well, the numbers are in! (Drum roll please.) We're proud to announce that our participating patients have raised a grand total of $600 for this wonderful organization. Way to go!
"We're delighted about the willingness of our patients to get involved," said Dr. Ochev. "It's amazing what the power of one simple gesture can do collectively."
Accepting our check was Breeding Colony Supervisor (and EvoSmile patient) Carol Simmons, "Thank you for making this gift possible and for supporting our work. We receive no government funding so a donation of this kind means a great deal."
The next time you come in for an appointment, please take part in our on-going campaign.
May 4, 2017 Happy Hour
A big thanks to everyone who stopped by for wine and cheese, and to give our new associate dentist Dr. Amanda Major a warm welcome. It was really nice to spend time with our patients "out of the chair." Also, thanks to all who entered Dr. Major's Patient Raffle for a chance to win a Sonicare toothbrush – our lucky winner was Julie Hingsbergen. Congratulations Julie! We hope you're loving your new sonic toothbrush!
