We had our second build date at the Fort Saskatchewan Build Site. Although it was a bit chillier this time around we still had a blast! We helped with framing walls during this Saturday at the duplex.
Run for the Cure event for 2016. Everyone had a great time this year. Although it was a little colder than most times we’ve participated it was awesome to see everyone out. Our great staff and their pets and kids came along as well!
Habitat for Humanity Edmonton had us come out to their new build site in Fort Saskatchewan. It was so much fun. Definitely different work than at the office but totally rewarding. We are looking forward to a second date in November!
We love volunteering here so much that we signed up with The Mustard Seed for our third time! They really needed volunteers in September so we took the initiative to organize another date! We made spaghetti, meatballs, and salad for dinner.
We Sponsored the KidSport annual event BidsforKids. It is the organizations biggest fundraiser of the year. It pays for registration fees for kids in our area. We have so many staff with young children in sports so this is a cause that is dear to us. Everyone should be given the chance to participate in organized sports as a child.
Wow! What an opportunity Sherwood Dental had to participate in the VIVO Heart Open. We were able to even have a sponsored hole at the event. The tournament is to raise funds for the Mazankowski Heart Institute. We have one of the best heart institutes in the world, right here in our very own city!
We volunteered and sponsored a meal again with The Mustard Seed. They keep us coming back for seconds! This time it was chicken burgers on the menu! The kitchen was a bit warm that evening but the meal turned out great. Dr. Holzman and his wife were able to attend this time and they loved it!
We raised $3000 for the Canadian Red Cross to Help with Relief efforts. YEGCycle allowed us the chance to raise money through their charity classes they offer. Thanks to Farha at YEGCycle for helping organize our group. The spin class was full of tons of energy and the Dentists at Northgate also came along to join us! It was the first time a lot of us had done spin and we will definitely be back!
The fires in Fort McMurray were devastating. Our staff had many ties to the area. We also had fellow dental offices that were affected by this tragic event. We donated toothbrushes, mouthwash, and toothpaste to help efforts with the Fort McMurray fires that occurred that summer.
Thanks to Thea and Kristy for dropping everything off!
Dr. Dowty sponsored ShelterBox and his patient at Strathcona Composite for their Bike-a-thon.
We began our ongoing sponsorship and volunteering with The Mustard Seed. It was such an amazing experience! Dr. Ghai and the rest of the team came out to volunteer. We served Meatballs and Rice that evening.
Dr. Dowty’s Dental Hockey Tournament raised $1000 for Kindness in Action and $300 for various other charities. He does this tournament every year with a bunch of other dentists in the city.
Blood Drive for Canadian Blood Services at Center in the Park. Dee Dee, Kelsey, Raena, and Kristy went down and donated! Kelsey and Kristy were first time donors-way to be brave ladies!
Clothing and Food Drive for the Mosaic Center. Thanks Dee Dee for making sure all the donations made it there in time! The warm jackets we donated we’re sure were valuable to community members.
Our sponsorship with Tooth Talks began! Tenille is a local hygienist who goes to schools in the community to help teach children about the important of oral hygiene.
Breast Friends Run for the Cure @ Churchill Square. Our staff, their pets, and family members all make it out every year to this event!
