2014 DTA Foundation Silent Auction Raises over $100,000

This text will be replaced with the slideshow

The DTA Foundation raised $117,172 through the Silent Auction held during the 2014 DTA Annual Meeting.   Funds raised from the auction support the Foundation’s Grants and Scholarship programs.  As an example of what your donations can do, $100,000 allows the Foundation to fund 4 grants or up to 20 scholarships!  This is the first year that all proceeds from the auction went directly to the Foundation.  It was also the first year to utilize mobile bidding. DTA members quickly mastered this new format and participated in a fun evening of raising awareness for increased access to oral health in America.

A wide range of prices for items at this year’s auction enabled even more people to participate.  In addition to traditional ad spaces and sports memorabilia, many fun and exciting new items were available. A beautiful pair of Tiffany pearl drop earrings generated quite a buzz.  Other unique items included a Pinehurst Golf experience, a Taste of Tennessee Bourbon Tour, and a Kayak and GoPro camera package.

Thank you to all who generously donated items to the auction and to all who participated in the bidding.  We look forward to an even bigger auction next year to increase the direct impact you have on oral health in America!
