We had a very successful candy trade in at Boger Dental. We collected 110 pounds of Halloween candy from our "trick or treaters"! Thank you to our Boger Dental Team for helping with those brave children ready to hand over their candy for cash! Dr. Chad Boger and Dr. Joe Madden donated $220 to those children, along with a goodie bag including toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and lip balm. We would like to personally thank Lori Lorence, Lorelle Eng, and Enisa Gluhic for coming in on Saturday to help out with this event.
My daughter and I then drove down to Ronald McDonald Charities on the University of Minnesota campus to deliver our two very heavy boxes full of candy to Lauren Rasmussen, director of their mobile care unit. Lauren told me that all the candy will be used for the concessions at their movie theatre on campus. The children who are staying with Ronald McDonald Charities, Upper Midwest are able to "go to the movies" and pick out 2-3 pieces of candy to enjoy while they are watching their movie. Boger Dental also donated child sized toothbrushes, flossers, and toothpastes. We couldn't just leave candy without these essential oral hygiene aids to get that sugar out of their teeth!
Boger Dental also held a drawing for one child to win a child's Sonicare toothbrush. The lucky winner is Blake Forrest! This was a great event to sponsor for our patients and the community of Plymouth. The team at Boger Dental would like to thank all of the parents who brought their children in for the exchange. We know it could not have been easy talking them into forfeiting their Halloween "loot"!
