FDHE Raffle at Conference

During the AADA Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada during the AADA 2019 Conference (April 11th – 13th, 2019), the Foundation for Dental Health Education (FDHE which is the Foundation of the Alliance of the ADA) will hold a Tickets for Teeth Raffle in an effort to raise grant funds for dental health education programs.

What is a Tickets for Teeth Raffle? The Tickets for Teeth Raffle is a combination of a raffle and an auction. The difference is that each prize has its own “raffle bag” instead of a bid sheet next to it. Ticket buyers (bidders) choose which prize(s) to “bid” on by placing their raffle ticket(s) into the “raffle bag” sitting next to the prize. At the conclusion of bidding, one winning ticket is drawn from each “raffle bag” and the prize is awarded to the owner of that ticket.

The Foundation needs your help with this fundraiser. We are requesting that each state, Leadership Council member and FDHE Board Members donate a $100 prize or two $50 dollar prizes. The prize can be any small/easily packable item: jewelry, purses, wallets, small works of art, electronic items, gift cards, etc. Just remember, the item needs to be able to easily travel home from Fort Worth in the person’s luggage. You can procure the item(s) from a vendor, your alliance can donate, or you can purchase the items through your dental office.

Please let me know if you will or will not be able to provide a prize. Knowing ahead of Conference, if you are sending a raffle item or bringing with you which will greatly help us in planning for the fundraiser. At this time, I do not need to know what the item(s) is, only that you will be providing one or two.

Complete the FDHE Donation Form and submit with your gift at Conference so we know who to credit for each item. Also, attached to this email, is a form for procuring a donated item from a vendor or retailer. We greatly appreciate your support of the Alliance of the ADA and the Foundation for Dental Health Education.

If you are not attending Conference, perhaps another person can bring your items to Conference for you. If this is not an option, as we get closer to the date of Conference, I will be able to provide an address for you to mail/ship the item directly. Just let me know and I will be happy to help you out.

Sincerely,
Jerilyn Bird
