“Teeny Teeth” is Back in Action!

Another school year has begun and so has the “Teeny Teeth” pre-K dental program, a community outreach effort between Young & Healthy and the Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC.  Dr. Julie Jenks and her third-year dental students provide dental screenings for Pasadena area pre-K students and Young & Healthy follows-up with those who show signs of cavities or need to be seen by a dentist immediately.  This is community partenership at its best!

Carnevale – A Night of Mystery and Revelry

It was an evening to remember as more than 200 guests enjoyed “Carnevale” at Young & Healthy’s recent gala event on January 26th at Pandora on Green. The evening raised approximately $170,000 to further the mission of Young & Healthy providing access to high-quality health care, health education and prevention care for the underserved children in the greater Pasadena area.

Kaiser Permanente Southern California was the recipient of the J. Donald Thomas Award. Kaiser has been a strong supporter of Young & Healthy since 1996, providing over $300,000 in grants and donations. Kaiser Permanent Southern California physicians and employees have also donated their time and talents by participating in Young & Healthy’s outreach programs.

“We are extremely grateful for all who donated, either through attending the gala, serving on the committee, donating to the auction or assisting in other ways to make this night a success and to help us to continue to serve the children in our community,” stated Mary Donnelly-Crocker, executive director.

Event Co-chair Laura Unanue and the dedicated committee organized a superb evening that included live and silent auctions, dancing and a lovely dinner.

The 2013 gala committee included Carol An, Annie Brose, Michele Canon, Jan Cantwell, Allison Dietrick, Ann Gluck, Juliette Harrhy, Wende Headley, Caroline Howell, Nobu Junge, Melissa Lorenz, Angela Mavridis, Harper McDonald, Andrea Patzakis, Laura Unanue, and Michele Waller.
