Mardi Gras Fundraiser to Benefit D-DENT

February 16, 2012

Oklahoma City-based Dentist for the Disabled and Elderly in Need of Treatment, Inc. (D-DENT) will be holding its annual fundraiser, Play for a Cause Mardi Gras Bingo, on February 17, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. at the Will Rogers Theater at 4322 N. Western Avenue.

D-DENT is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide free oral health services to qualified residents ofOklahoma. Extensive dental care and preventive dental education are some of the services that D-Dent offers to low-income seniors, developmentally disabled children under 18, and low-income uninsured veterans.

According to Shirley Harris, Executive Director of D-DENT, the organization provided services to 751 people last year, despite the cuts in their funding from theOklahomalegislature. Despite such success, the organization needs more funds to cover the laboratory fees for its patients, and they hope to generate that additional money through their fundraiser.

Tickets for the Play for a Cause Mardi Gras Bingo are available for $65 per person and include a bingo card, a silent auction, and heavy appetizers.  A cash bar will be available, and those who would like to purchase additional bingo cards may do so for $10 each.
