Don't keep silent about the need for donations for the TAWD Silent Auction March 13 at UT School of Dentistry.

Donations are being collected now for the 16th Annual Silent Auction benefitting TAWD, the Texas Association of Women Dentists. The event will be held Thursday, March 13 outside the Fullerton Classroom (4310) at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston. Past donations have included gift cards, gift baskets, paintings, jewelry, services, etc., but organizers say the options are endless.

This year, the auction proceeds will benefit both TAWD and the Mina Rosenthal-Eames Fund, which was created in memory of a UT School of Dentistry student who was a victim of domestic violence. The fund provides means for women and children who have been victims of domestic abuse to receive needed dental care they might not be able to get otherwise.

For more information or to make a donation, contact Nichole.M.Pickford@uth.tmc.edu or Jennifer.N.Griffith@uth.tmc.edu.  Donations can be made to “TAWD” and mailed to: 

Attn: TAWD
Office of Student and Alumni Affairs, SOD-4136
7500 Cambridge St, Houston TX 77054

The Texas Association of Women Dentists was founded so that women of the dental profession can build and nurture both professional and social relationships with their peers.  TAWD also extends beyond the spectrum of dental school and strives to give back to the community by participating in and orchestrating events such as Race for the Cure, the Silent Auction, and working with the Greater Houston Women’s Shelter.
