4th annual Sensational Smiles Fundraiser March 23 | Events
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Oral Health Coalition of Southeast Missouri will be hosting their fourth annual Sensational Smiles Fundraiser on Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m.
The event will be at The Concourse, 429 North Broadview Street in Cape Girardeau. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. You can buy tickets from Dotty Gholson at 573-651-3747, ext. 119 or 579-4709.
The OHC says it allows them to sustain their work and provide Dental Treatment Scholarships for children with urgent dental needs. It also serves as an opportunity to recognize dental providers and community volunteers in our school and daycare screenings.
The Oral Health Coalition is a local coalition working to improve oral health through prevention, education and increased access to affordable quality dental care. The coalition says during this current school year, over 5,000 youth in Cape Girardeau County have had free dental screenings and fluoride varnish applications thanks to many who volunteer their time and expertise. They say many urgent dental needs are identified at these screening events. The coalition then works with families to help these children receive the needed treatment.
For more information or to arrange for a donation to be picked up, you can also e-mail Gholson at email@example.com.
