Despite ominous predictions of rain, the sun came out on June 6th for Speare’s 21st Annual Golf Classic.

“A great group of golfers joined us for the fundraiser,” says Cheryl Callnan, director of development at Speare and coordinator of the event. “We are so pleased that more than $33,000 was raised for our School Dental Health Program!”

Participants enjoyed food, fun, and fabulous prizes provided by event sponsors and donors.

“The generosity of our sponsors and the time and hard work that our tournament volunteers put in make this event such a success,” says Ruth Doane, dental hygienist for the Program. “All of the dental services that we provide through the Program are either free or at a low cost, and the funds raised from the golf tournament ensure that we can continue to provide these services.”

Speare’s School Dental Health Program, now in its 21st year, benefits from a strong collaboration between local schools, area dentists, school nurses, parents, students, and Speare Memorial Hospital.

“When I moved to Plymouth and learned about this program, I knew I wanted to get involved and sponsoring the golf tournament was a great way to do this,” says Dr. Joan Kirschner of Plymouth General Dentistry.” Tooth decay is preventable, yet it remains a chronic childhood disease. Children need access to, and education about, the importance of oral care and that’s the mission of Speare’s program.”
