The article told the story of Season for Caring recipient, Bob Green, a 60-year old throat cancer survivor. More than 30 rounds of radiation severely damaged Mr. Green’s teeth. CADF volunteer dentist and former Development Committee Chairman, Dr. Kelly Keith, has volunteered to provide Mr. Green with a full set of dentures at absolutely no cost. Mr. Green’s Season for Caring sponsor, the Foundation for the Homeless, will use about $700 worth of Season for Caring donations to cover the lab work required to create the dentures. Dr. Keith is one of several CADF dentists who have stepped forward to volunteer their services to Season for Caring families.
Your generous and loyal support of CADF’s Annual Gala makes it possible for our growing foundation to participate in programs like Season for Caring and connect patients like Bob Green with dentists like Dr. Keith.
If you are interested in participating in the Season for Caring program or another charitable dental program, please contact Lisa Apfelberg, CADF Program Director at email@example.com or 512-971-8005.
Just two months away, the Capital Area Dental Foundation Great Gatsby Gala and Casino will undoubtedly be a night to remember. Not only is the Gala our biggest fundraiser of the year, it offers an outstanding opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of oral health care and promote the life-changing work that CADF does in the community along with our many committed partners.
A heartfelt thanks to the following sponsors who have stepped forward to support the 2014 Gala. Without your continued passion and support, CADF could simply not achieve its charitable mission and serve thousands of Central Texans in need every year. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Capital Area Dental Foundation!
Central Texas dentists are a generous bunch who give back to the community in many ways. For the past two years, CADF has partnered with the Austin American-Statesman Season for Caring campaign during the holiday season to help families in need. Last year, CADF dentists provided dental care to several deserving families, including Brandi Brewer, now a member of the CADF Communications Committee. This year, CADF is ramping up to help many as nine Central Texas families who are going through challenging times, financially and otherwise. You can read more about these brave families and their inspiring stories the day after Thanksgiving in an extended feature in the Austin American-Statesman.
If you are a dentist and are interested in treating a patient as part of the Season for Caring campaign, please contact CADF Program Director, Lisa Apfelberg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-971-8005.
