Cruise Around the World
Date and Venue: Saturday, September 15th, 2018 at Hyatt Regency Vancouver
This year marks a major milestone for the Chinese Canadian Dental Society of BC, as it will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary. To commemorate this accomplishment, CCDSBC will hold its Annual Gala Dinner Extravaganza on Saturday, September 15th at the elegant Hyatt Regency Vancouver.
From its humble start-up in 1988, CCDSBC has evolved into an influential and prominent organization locally, and nationally. It has always strived to promote and improve the oral health of our community. Over the years through the Annual Gala, CCDSBC has raised much needed funds to establish Bursaries and Endowment Funds at UBC, update equipment to the dental clinic at Vancouver General Hospital, start up a Mobile Community Dental Clinic in partnership with UBC Dentistry, provide funds to the BC Cancer Agency’s Oral Cancer Prevention Program, and lately equip a dental clinic at Villa Cathay Care Home.
The beneficiary for 2018 will be the BCDA’s “Save A Smile” program. It supports the urgent dental care needs of BC children from low income families. Dental disease has a tremendous impact on children. Untreated problems can cause pain, interfere with sleep, impair nutrition, impact concentration and attendance at school, and create barriers to socialization. Funds raised for Save a Smile are fully directed to patient care. To date, the program has supported nearly 1700 children in accessing dental treatment.
Our Annual Gala is a well-established and sought after event in which we get together for an evening of great camaraderie, fantastic food, exquisite wine, and remarkable entertainment. This year you will be taken on a magical Cruise Around the World.
With plenty of door prizes and auction items, arrive early to view the latest Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and take pictures of the great décor and reminisce with colleagues.
