If you are already a patient of Dr. Patel’s, then you will already be aware of her deep commitment to our local community. It is extremely important for our practice to support local charities and to actively participate in local events. This is why we are delighted to support the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund. The charity is hosting a large fundraising event called “Taste!” At the Normandy Farm on March 22, beginning at 6 PM.

A Little Bit about This Wonderful Charity

The charity was set up by Kelly Anne Dolan’s parents after their little girl sadly lost her fight for life in 1976. During Kelly’s illness, her parents realized the hardship experienced by many parents who were caring for a sick child. Some of these parents were at risk of losing their homes and jobs because of the physical and financial costs of caring for a seriously ill child. The Dolan’s established the charity to help families who are placed in this position.

We think this charity works wonders, raising funds to assist local families in our area who are caring for a seriously ill, injured or disabled child. The charity has a Financial Assistance program which helps to pay for expenses not covered by insurance and which include adaptive equipment, therapy and home modifications, and basic requirements such as utility bills and rent. Since its inception over 40 years ago, the charity has assisted more than 27,500 seriously ill or severely disabled children and this fundraising event is extremely important.

Taste 2018

Now in its 11th year, this annual food and beverage tasting event, is expected to draw support from many local people and businesses. The event is a great opportunity to explore the excellent food and beverages from our wonderful local producers and restaurants, giving you the chance to enjoy a selection of tastings including wine, beer, and spirits. It’s an excellent way to discover a brand-new favorite.

Our Participation in This Event

Our practice is supporting the silent auction and we decided it would be nice to contribute something which would make somebody smile. This is why we are donating a professional teeth whitening kit and which includes custom fabricated whitening trays. Professional teeth whitening is an easy and effective way to brighten your smile, but above all, it’s safe. Each teeth whitening kit is fully customized and includes whitening trays which are made to fit exactly over your teeth. Dr. Patel will prescribe the correct strength of whitening gel as well as complete instructions as to how to use the trays. They are very simple to use, and some people choose to wear them for just a few hours a day, while others like to leave them in overnight during sleep. It couldn’t be simpler to brighten your smile.

If you have the chance to support this event, then we are sure you will have a great time and of course, it is for such a great cause.
