Austin “Share The Love” Gala
Submitted by Jennifer Randall, Austin, TX Chapter President
Austin, TX chapter steering committee members Mary Hesch, FAADOM, Mari Trigg, FAADOM and Jenn Randall, MAADOM volunteered at Manos De Cristo’s “Share the Love” Gala 2021. The Gala is one of Manos biggest fund raisers of the year. This year over 300 guests came to eat, drink and bit on great auction items.
Founded in 1988, Manos meets the essential needs of individuals and families by providing access to affordable, high quality dental care, adult educational opportunities, and emergency food and clothing through its full-service Dental Center, Education program, annual Back-to-School program, and Basic Needs program.
The Manos de Cristo Dental Center offers dental care at highly reduced rates. The eleven chair, state-of-the-art facility is staffed by licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants. The staff provides one-on-one care to create the right treatment plan for each individual. Their goal is to save smiles and improve oral health.
Mary volunteered in the afternoon to make the lovely flower arrangements, while Mari and Jenn checked in the 300 guests that arrived that evening. Also, our own Majet Arias (steering committee member) was there with her dental office.
