The Auction

Happy one year of staying home and staying safe! 

Once again, an in-person Spring Gala cannot be safely done due to COVID-19. To try to help combat some of the restlessness everyone is feeling, we are introducing a one-of-a-kind VINA event! The Spring Out of Quarantine Auction is a virtual silent auction full of fun experiences and great deals to help get out of the house in the coming months as the weather warms up and more people get their vaccine.

VINA

VINA is a nonprofit dental clinic established in 2008 and located in Brighton, Michigan. All of the patients at VINA have no dental insurance and income at or below 225% of the Federal Poverty Level. The out-of-pocket cost of dental care is too great and many patients do not have access to affordable dental care without the services of VINA. 

Many patients at VINA have not had dental care in years or even decades. Many experience frequent pain and other health complications from this lack of dental care. Oral health problems can prevent patients from receiving surgery or infection, taking a toll on overall health. VINA works to provide quality dental care and education to these underserved patients to improve health and quality of life

VINA patients only pay $25 per appointment and $10 for routine hygiene visits. This reduced financial burden for patients helps restore smiles in the community. VINA is funded through special events, donations, and grants.

Services include: Oral Cancer Screenings & Oral Exams, Oral Surgery & Extractions, Fluoride Treatment, Cleanings, Fillings, X-Rays, Crowns
