Ormco Corp, Orange, Calif, will host its annual fundraising benefit for Smile for a Lifetime Foundation (S4L), a non-profit organization that provides free orthodontic care to underserved children with financial challenges.
The event will take place on February 15, 2013, from 7:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in Orlando, Fla, and will include a dinner, dance, and an “Orthos’s Got Talent” karaoke competition for orthodontists.
The event will also feature a “Smilent Auction” where attendees can bid on donated items such as electronics and vacation packages.
In addition to hosting the event, Ormco has donated more than $100,000 in products to S4L, including free brackets and wires to the orthodontists who award and treat S4L scholarship recipients.
“We are excited to host this year’s fundraising event and play our part in contributing to a special cause that gives the gift of a smile to admirable children who do not have the opportunity to undergo orthodontic care without financial assistance,” said Vicente Reynal, president of Ormco.
Ormco will host the benefit in conjunction with its 12th annual Damon Forum, a practice-building conference designed specifically for orthodontists. The Damon Forum will begin on February 13 and end February 16, 2013.
Last year, the Damon Forum fund-raised $75,000 for the Smile For a Lifetime Foundation.
