Dear Supporters, Friends, and Colleagues,
On Saturday, December 5th, 2015, we the Miller-Lawrence Medical and Dental Society will have our 10th Annual Scholarship Fundraiser Dinner at The Grand on Willow in Long Beach. At the event we again will present scholarships to deserving local medical, dental and nursing students to assist them financially in their academic endeavors. During the past nine years we have awarded over $120,000 to students to offset the enormous cost of medical education. At least $15,000 in scholarships will be awarded again this year. This year we will again recognize individuals with the Trailblazer Award. The honoree for 2015 will be Rev. Dr. Clyde Oden, Jr, founder of United Health Plan, a pioneering managed care plan that set the template for minority managed care entities in Southern California. He is presently senior pastor, Bryant Temple AME Church.
The President’s Award will be presented to the trio that resurrected our esteemed Miller-Lawrence Medical and Dental Society, and who remain very active in the community providing medical and dental care:
Dr. Toni Chavis-Greene, Dr. James E. Saunders, and Dr. Alfonso Faison (DDS). This trio saw the inherent importance in having an active local NMA society in the area of south Los Angeles county. Tickets for this event are $125.00 per person and a table for ten is $1,000. We are requesting ticket or table contributions, or if you are unable to attend, a donation. The fee for exhibitions/exhibitors is $1000. This will provide the exhibitor acknowledgement in the Dinner Program as well as preferred placement at the venue. In addition, advertisements are available for $1,000 for the inside front
or inside back cover, $500.00 for a full page, $250.00 for ½ page. The advertisement may also pay tribute to the honorees and the
students if desired. The advertisement should be in jpeg or word document format and emailed to Errick Lee at email@example.com.
The deadline for the advertisement is November 10th.
Your financial contribution can be mailed to:
PO Box 19006, Long Beach, CA 90807
Due to the high degree of interest in the scholarship awardees and our honorees and the limited space available at the venue, we expect this event to sell out.
Please respond as soon as possible, as we will reserve tables and seats on a first come, first serve basis.
We sincerely thank you for your continued support for this worthy cause.
