At Door County Dental Care, we make it a priority not only to give back to our patients, but to make a difference in our local community.
On March 7th, St. John Bosco Catholic School in Sturgeon Bay held their annual ‘Gala of Giving’, complete with a live auction, silent auction, 50/50, and a bag raffle. All of the funds raised at the Gala of Giving are used at the school, and this year, part of the money raised was used to help the school implement a new reading and literacy program.
Door County Dental Care was proud to donate two custom-made bleaching trays for home use. It takes about 2 weeks to achieve optimum bleaching, at about an hour a day. Door County Dental Care has been donating to the Gala for years, and this year’s kits were part of the silent auction.
Volunteers with the Gala of Giving say the event is growing each year, with about 260 people attending this year. Thanks to the support of local families and generous community leaders, they managed to raise about $45,000 at the 2015 Gala.
The children of today are the future of tomorrow, and Door County Dental Care is honored and excited to be able to contribute to our local schools!
