Connect4Cash Raffle Hits the Mark!
The new Connect4Cash raffle to benefit the MDA Foundation was our most successful fundraiser to date! In addition to netting more than $8,000 for dental scholarship and grassroots oral healthcare outreach efforts, the raffle added a lot of spice to the Connect4Success exhibit hall and breaks as people eagerly hoped they would dodge elimination. More than $2,000 was raised on site from side raffle sales that offered a chance to get “back in the barrel”. It was all great, competitive fun that culminated with doling out the dollars at happy hour.
Congratulations to Dr. Elwood Rice, former MDA Foundation Chair. His lucky #14 won the grand prize of $1,500 cash. MDAF Board member Dr. Danielle Riordan was runner up with $700 in cash. All told, we gave out $3,650 in cash, plus another 20 prizes donated by exhibitors. We expect the pot and this fun competition to grow every year with more participation, so watch for your chance next year. A heartfelt thanks to all who purchased or donated raffle tickets and donated prizes!
