Donating to a Great Cause

Lane & Associates had the pleasure of attending the 10th Annual Pink Tie Affair in Downtown Raleigh at the Marriott City Center in honor of the amazing 1ofUs Foundation. This year’s Pink Tie Affair was Carnival-themed and the entire fundraising event was decked out from head to toe with a Live Auction, performances, and entertainment!

The 1ofUs Foundation was started in 2010 and has since assisted more than 4,000 cancer patients in direct, non-medical related expenses that occur during cancer treatment. This financial assistance ranges from grocery assistance, gasoline and transportation, to rent, utilities, and even childcare. This direct financial assistance during cancer treatment is so important and has touched so many lives.

As a proud Presenting Sponsor for the event and long-time supporter, Lane & Associates was able to donate over $50,000 to support the cause! Thank you to all other supporters who have donated to this amazing foundation and supporting our North Carolina friends and families going through tough times during cancer treatment.

To find out more about the 1ofUs Foundation and ways to get involved, please visit their website at 1ofUs.org.

Last week our Lane & Associates team was proud to join the 13th Annual Tee-Off for the Troops Golf Classic held by Military Missions in Action(MMIA). The event took place at the Bentwoods Golf & Country Club in Fuquay-Varina and was a beautiful day spent golfing and giving back to Veterans with disabilities, members of the Armed Forces, and their families.

Dr. Raleigh Wright and marketing team member Lilly Holcomb (shown above) golfed the classic and participated in the competitions along the course. 

Military Missions in Action is dedicated to assisting veterans with disabilities, homeless veterans, members of the Armed forces, and their families. ​​MMIA’s varied programs work at providing support to Veterans who need construction project assistance due to disabilities or sub-standard living conditions and our homeless Veterans. They also send Care Packages to units that are down-range, as well as assist military families that are trying to make ends meet.

What a remarkable convention filled to the brim with dental knowledge, fellowship, and fun! Our corporate staff and dentists had the pleasure of attending the American Dental Association’s (ADA) SmileCon 2021 in beautiful Las Vegas last week! 

The convention was held at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and had over 10,000 attendees with 300 exhibitors! Our team attended CE courses, business in dentistry courses, and interacted with the other dental members from thousands of other practices across the country. 

The ADA had a new take on their typical annual meeting and created an immersive experience centered around the attendee. There were incredible speakers, Smile lounge games, creative sessions, and even a scavenger hunt! 

Thank you to the entire ADA staff, its volunteers, and the sponsors who hosted such an incredible week of learning, playing, and living dentistry! It truly made us smile! We can’t wait for the ADA SmileCon 2022 in Houston, see y’all there!
