Friends of PAC is grateful to be selected by Pinedale Dental as the 2019 Smiles for Life campaign local recipient.
ABOUT SMILES FOR LIFE
From March through June, hundreds of dental practices throughout the U.S. and Canada professionally whiten teeth to raise money for charity through the Smiles For Life Foundation. Ultradent (makers of Boost in-office teeth whitening and Opalescence® take-home trays) donates ALL of the teeth whitening supplies, and participating Crown Council dentists donate ALL of their time to whiten teeth during the Smiles For Life campaign. Together, they offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices with 100% of the proceeds going to the foundation which is then divided 50% to a local charity (Friends of PAC) chosen by the participating dentist (Pinedale Dental) and 50% to a charity approved by the Smiles for Life Foundation.
Established in 2018, Friends of PAC's mission is to ensure supplemental funding and community engagement for ongoing recreation services and facilities in support of the Pinedale Aquatic Center. The donation from Pinedale Dental and Smiles for Life will be used to support the Jr. Wrangler basketball program. This youth program provides fundamental focused basketball opportunities to boy and girl athletes grades K-6. This past season, 27 volunteer coaches and 154 athletes participated in the program. We are so thankful for the donation this year and appreciate the support Dr. Kundard has given to the program in years past.
