Did You Know?

As dentistry's premier philanthropic and charitable organization, the ADA Foundation builds relationships to help make a difference through better oral health. One of the most important ways in which the ADA Foundation does this is to provide fundraising support for Give Kids A Smile, the ADA's signature access-to-care program.

The ADAF GKAS Gala combines two popular events – the ADA President's Gala, which typically took place during the ADA House of Delegates meetings immediately following the Annual Session, and the Give Kids A Smile Gala, which took place during the summer months. The goal is to bring a powerful fundraising element to one of the ADA annual meeting's most prestigious events.

The 2012 and 2013 ADAF GKAS Gala events each raised more than $82,000 in new funds each year for Give Kids A Smile. Thank you for being a part of this important event.
