May 05, 2014

San Antonio—Save a spot on your ADA 2014 calendar for the ADA Foundation Give Kids A Smile Gala on Oct. 10 from 7-11:30 p.m. at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter.

Quite a party is shaping up as preparations are made for the annual event that will honor Dr. Charles Norman, ADA president, and the ADA Board of Trustees while raising much-needed funds for Give Kids A Smile, the ADA's premier access-to-care program.

At the event, Foundation leadership will announce winners of the 2014 Smile Champion Awards for Give Kids A Smile—the Dr. Jeffrey Dalin Give Kids A Smile Volunteer Award and the Steven W. Kess Give Kids A Smile Corporate Volunteer Award. Kathy Woodard, of the Ohio Dental Association, and Candy Ross, of Danaher Corporation, are the 2013 Smile Champions. Ms. Woodard received the Dalin Award and Ms. Ross received the Kess Award.

The ADAF GKAS Gala raised about $82,000 in new funds for Give Kids A Smile in both 2012 and 2013.

Tickets are $250, with $100 of each ticket being a charitable donation to the ADA Foundation GKAS Fund. Purchase tickets through the ADA 2014 website at For more information, call the ADA Foundation at 1-312-440-2547.
