Mouse Races a Big Success
Posted by Paul on 11/9/2012 1:03:00 PM
This was not your typical gathering of dental professionals. It was the first ever Mouse Races at the Mid Continent Dental Congress. In a phrase, we had fun raising funds! Here's some more about our crazy night.
About 100 people became instant fans as they experienced this unusual evening that featured mice racing on a track, mouse roulette, a silent auction filled with goodies, blackjack tables, prize raffle, parlor games, and a photo booth. The concept is to hang out with your friends and spend some money on fake gambling (all your proceeds remain with us!). You can bet on the mice, you can bet on the roulette, you can play blackjack. The more you spend, the more you can win and give back.
Net proceeds for this first time event topped $7500. They all go to benefit three solid dental charities: The Delta Dental Health Theater, The MDA Foundation, and the Well Being Foundation. Thank you to everyone who gave of their time and resources to make this a successful night.
A special thanks to our $100+ pre-event sponsors who made sure we would succeed: Delta Dental of Missouri; Drs. Schmidt, Cayo and Hopp; MDIS, BWTP, Pediatric Dentistry of Sunset Hills, the North/Central/West districts of the GSLDS; Northeast Dental Society; Dr Thomas Flavin; Central Dental Society; Dentures and Dental Services; Donald Bastean; Edmonds Dental Prosthetics; The Farley Center at Williamsburg; UF and Shands Florida Recovery Center; Dr. Charles Poeschl; and Keller Labs. You guys rock!
Now that people "get it" we will make a few tweaks and we will be back bigger and better next year so plan to attend the Mid-Continent and join us for a fun night. It's open to anyone 21+ so bring your office staff, family, friends, etc.
