“Every day, our supporters and fundraisers—our Champions for Children—inspire us with their passion to serve our patients and their families. Last year, more than 350 Champions of all ages hosted toy drives, ran marathons, painted artwork, and even sold lemonade to support children’s health! We’d like to introduce you to five Champions who inspired us in 2017.
Dr. Christine Hansen: Brightening Smiles and Live
In 2017, Palo Alto dentist, Christine Hansen, DDS, and her expert team hosted their 5th annual teeth whitening fundraiser in support of the Cleft and Craniofacial Center at Packard Children’s. During the fundraiser, Christine offers $99 teeth whitening services and donates 100 percent of the proceeds to support the center in their efforts to provide comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment for children with conditions affecting the face, head, and neck.
“I have tried to do some sort of a fundraiser ever since I purchased my practice about 20 years ago. I think it is very important we do something for those less fortunate than us. My hope is that our fundraisers will raise awareness in our community about the important work done at Packard Children’s. I also hope to incentivize more of my patients to get involved.”
Since beginning their fundraiser in 2013, Christine and her team have raised nearly $30,000 for our patients.
