Dear Friend of the UNC School of Dentistry:
Things have certainly calmed down for everyone here at the School of Dentistry. Our summer classes are underway and members of the Class of 2012 have begun the next phase of their dental careers. As for the Office of Advancement, we're still settling into our new office space and re-acclimating to life on the UNC campus. We're also doing our best to enjoy this little bit of down time since we know that everything will begin to pick up again soon; calendars are already beginning to fill for next academic year!
Speaking of events, let's go ahead and get some of our upcoming School of Dentistry events on your calendar, shall we? Please plan to join us for one - or all! - of these events:
- Unveiling of Dean Brauer Sculpture: Saturday, September 29, 2012
- UNCDAA Football Tailgate Party: Saturday, September 29, 2012
- ADA Meeting UNC Alumni Reception: Friday, October 19, 2012
- 19th School of Dentistry Golf Tournament: Friday, April 12, 2013
- Second Annual Best of Dentistry Weekend (including D.D.S. Class Reunions): Friday, April 26 - Saturday, April 27, 2013
Another event we're planning is the Saturday Supper and Rock & Roll on the Farm on Saturday, September 15! This one-of-a-kind experience comes complete with food, wine and music for only 60 attendees. Held at Dr. and Mrs. Lee Sockwell's beautiful Tooth Acres Farm, attendees will enjoy music by the Robert Foley Band, food by Kevin Callaghan of Acme (Carrboro, N.C.) and Sam McGann of Blue Point (Duck, N.C.), and award-winning wines from the Napa-based Robert Foley Estate Vineyards! Tickets are $400 each and all proceeds will benefit UNC School of Dentistry scholarships and the fourth-year dental clinic. We're mailing information on how to register for the event soon, so be watching your mail. And get your reply in quickly - only 30 spots for the 60-person event remain!
You should also be watching your mail for the draft 2011-12 Honor Roll of Giving. This list reflects gifts received during the 2011-12 fiscal year (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012). It's run annually in the Fall North Carolina Dental Review and added to the school's website. If you don't see your name on the list and want to ensure you're listed as a donor for the current fiscal year, click here to give online or contact our office (firstname.lastname@example.org, 919.537.3257) to discuss your giving options. Please note your gift must be postmarked/processed by Saturday, June 30 in order to count towards the 2011-12 fiscal year.
Thank you for your continued support and your interest in the UNC School of Dentistry!
