Staying Busy in the Communities That We Serve

Lane and Associates (LAA) takes pride in partnering with local businesses and providing support at community events .  At our core, we strive to connect and give back to those that we serve. Our October has been full of amazing community events that we’ve had the opportunity to be involved in.  Read below about some of the events that we have recently attended.

Caniac Carnival

On October 1st, Lane & Associates (LAA) was invited to the 2022 Carolina Hurricane’s Caniac Kickoff. As the official team dentist, we were more than happy to oblige! LAA’s Smile Squad filled the corridor with smiling faces, cheerful laughs, lane swag, and of course the beloved prize wheel. It was a huge hit amongst guests of all ages. Once the wheel was in rotation, a bright smile would overcome each participant as they awaited to see what prize their spin won. It was a great event full of excitement and energy!

Moore County Employee Health Fair

Lane and Associates also attended the Moore County Employee Health Fair in Carthage, NC. This event was hosted to bring awareness to different healthcare businesses available to Moore County employees. Attendees entered the Parks & Recreation Sports Complex, and were urged to make their round to each table to learn about what each company offered.

Lane & Associates welcomed everyone to their table with a spin of the prize wheel, and gave out informational cards detailing the different services offered. The event had a great turnout. We met some new faces as well as some of our current patients.

Looking Forward to Future Events

We are always looking for ways to get involved in our communities. In a few weeks, we look forwarded to attending the Maysville Fall Fest! Keep a lookout for us, and if you find yourself there, please stop by our booth to say hello!

PNC Canes Walk

The 9th annual Canes 5k took place at the PNC Arena on September 18th.  People from across the triangle gathered to race and show support for the Canes Foundation.  Lane and Associates were among many organizations there to show support.

The LAA crew arrived to the PNC Arena around 8am. After being greeted with bright smiling faces, PNC blasted music to get everyone pumped.  The crowd was vibrant, and participants began to fill the stadium, painting the arena red with their complimentary Canes 5k tees.  As the time approached for the race to begin, PNC kept the energy high by introducing players from the Carolina Hurricanes. The cheers sent a huge wave of joy throughout the crowd.  This was the perfect segue to begin the race.

Time to Race

PNC concluded the morning warm up, and participants began to line up at the starting line to begin the race.  The whistle blew and everyone started pacing themselves to complete their 5k journey.  The course was strategically mapped with checkpoints staffed by volunteers cheering contestants on and keeping the momentum high.

The Final Stretch

After some time the runners began trickling in to the finish line.  During the final stretch you could see a burst of energy overcome each participant as they approached the finish line.  After each runner crossed the finish line, their hands flew in the air and huge smiles of accomplishment beamed across their faces. At the race’s conclusion a sense of euphoria rushed across the crowd as everyone completed their own personal 5k journey.

In conclusion,  with the help of each and every participant The Canes Foundation was able to raise $50,000 to help provide funding to children’s nonprofits with a health or education focus throughout North Carolina.  Lane and Associates is proud to support its community and give back!  We appreciate the Carolina Hurricanes for their continuous efforts to service their own stomping grounds, and look forward to more community events.

Annual Kay Yow Cancer Fund Golf Classic

Lane & Associates Family Dentistry (LAA) had the pleasure of sponsoring the registration of this year’s Annual Kay Yow Cancer Fund Golf Classic. As Mission Partners of the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation LAA has aided in the uniting of communities in the fight against cancer.

On August 21st golfers and supporters arrived at the beautiful Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst, NC to register for the next day’s golf classic. The Nike swag each golfer received did not disappoint; pullovers, hats, and shoes! Lane & Associates had to get in on the action and gifted each golfer with a backpack filled with golf balls and tees, a cooling towel, and healthy snacks to keep the golfers going.

Kay Yow Cancer Fund Reception Did Not Disappoint

That night, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund celebrated with an outstanding welcome reception at the hotel.  Festive pink up lighting lit the room as you navigated through multiple food stations which included a salad bar, taco bar, charcuterie display, an amazing paella filled with seafood, and so much more.  Let’s not forget dessert, the pink-themed desserts definitely deserve an honorable mention, strawberry shortcake cupcake, cheesecake, and ridiculously appetizing shortbread cookies.

              

Games and a pink paddle auction entertained guests as more money was raised to continue the fight against all cancers affecting women. The auction alone raised over $170,00 dollars.

“It was amazing to see all of these people give. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund through Lane & Associates.  It has become near and dear to my heart; the people and the mission.” says Stephanie Klein, Marketing Director.

One by one women took the stage to share stories of life and loss. Impactful stories of how the fund has helped them through their cancer journey with lessons of how important early detection is.  Lane has worked with Stephanie Glance, outgoing CEO and lifetime board member for many years and we were excited when she was presented the Kay Yow Cancer Fund Impact Award!

The night continued with tears, hugs, empowerment, and of course dancing. We cannot wait until next year!

Kay Yow Cancer Fund Statistics:

The Kay Yow cancer fund has awarded $7.88 million dollars in grants against ALL cancers affecting women. Here are some impressive statistics of Kay Yow Cancer Funds’ grants:

  • $2.4M – Ovarian Cancer$1.6M – Breast Cancer
  • $1.28M – Assisting The Underserved$1.1M – Uterine/Endometrial Cancer
  • $1M – Cancer In Aging Women
  • $200,000 – Women’s Cancer
  • $100,000 – Lung Cancer
  • $5,000 – Mammograms Per Year

We’d Love to Hear and Share Your Story!

WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS!

Message to teachers on Chalk BoardLane and Associates Family Dentistry takes pride in giving back to the community at every chance we get. We have been fortunate enough to support local businesses and organizations, sponsor customer appreciation events, and work closely with the Kay Yow Foundation. Our dedication to our community, however, does not stop there.

Teachers give it their all for their students every day. This is why it is so important to make sure the teachers in our community feel and understand exactly how appreciative everyone is for ALL that they do. Here at Lane & Associates, we love to celebrate our teachers as much as we can, both in and out of our office!

This week, Lane and Associates had the opportunity to sponsor a teacher appreciation event at North Ridge Elementary School. We provided a luncheon to show our support and gratitude for them – complete with catered Armadillo Grill and dessert! Teachers received goodie bags filled with various treats as they took a well-deserved break, as well as swag bags of Lane and Associates gear.

Cinco de Mayo Head Assistant Fun!

At Lane & Associates Family Dentistry we know how important meetings are for professional development and growth, but we also know they don’t have to be boring! Our Head Assistants celebrated their quarterly meeting in style. The entire meeting was Cinco de Mayo themed from decor to games to food. Table runners in a variety of colors hosted paper flowers, vases filled with colored water and fresh flower arrangements, and mini sombreros. The assistants were filled with surprise and even took pieces of the table arrangements with them!

Awards and accolades were distributed throughout the meeting. We learned and ate lunch catered by Chinelos. The delicious spread included chicken, beef, beans, rice, guacamole, salad, salsa, and a cheese fountain!

To conclude the meeting each Head Assistant received a piñata stuffed with candy and a special prize. The prizes included: 2 sets of 6 tickets to a Mudcats baseball game, a total of $360 cash, and $150 worth of gift cards.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Cinco de Mayo with our Head Assistants and cannot wait for our next themed meeting.

Here are some fun captures of Wednesday’s meeting!
