“We wanted our guests to have a lot of fun at our Fundraising Gala on Oct 18th at the Westin – and we thought the uplifting Moulin Rouge style would make it memorable and entertaining,” says CoraMarie Clark, Founder of The Tooth Fairy Children's Foundation.
“The Paris themed Moulin Rouge not only represents stylish dress and entertainment, but it was also the birthplace of the Can-Can. It gives everyone a chance to dress up and let loose on the dance floor. We will also have top hats, boas and fascinators available for purchase at the door.”
Funds raised at the 6th Annual Tooth Fairy Children’s Foundation Fundraising Gala go directly toward fulfilling the Foundation’s mission of providing every child worldwide with a toothbrush, education and access to dental care.
To date, The Tooth Fairy Children’s Foundation has put toothbrushes into the hands of more than 385,000 children in 43 countries. The goal for 2013 is to give 400,000 toothbrushes to children in need. Each dollar that is raised at the gala will make the Foundation three toothbrushes closer to its goal, and give three more children a possession every human should be entitled to have.
“I am incredibly humbled by the support we have had received so far - I get goose bumps just thinking about all of the children that are going to receive a toothbrush because of the funds raised at this gala. I have personally witnessed the need among children in Kenya, China and Guinea,” says Clark.
“The reality is that 90% of the cavities children have in these developing countries go untreated. These cavities develop into infections that enter the blood stream and in some cases they can have deadly consequences. All of this is preventable. The Tooth Fairy Children’s Foundation 2013 Fundraising Gala will not only be an enjoyable night for attendees but also help to save the lives of children around the world.”
