Homeless Not Toothless, the non-profit organization founded by Brentwood dentist Dr. Jay Grossman, will honor actress Sharon Stone, writer/ producer Antwone Fisher and USC School of Dentistry’s Mobile Unit Founder Dr. Charles Goldstein for their continuous support, philanthropic work and inspiration on Thursday, September 10th, at the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica.
Hollywood’s favorite stars including Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy and James Denton, as well as authorities in the Dental and Medical community will come together for an evening of philanthropy, music and entertainment. With music provided by Trevor Hall and Shawn King, much-needed funds will be raised for the El Monte Free Dental Clinic, which will provide almost 30,000 Los Angeles foster children with the required dental work to enter and stay in the school system.
“We have the responsibility to take care of children,” Dr. Grossman explains. “These children who have been pulled out of their families and have no parents to rely on have it hard enough. The last thing they need is not to have access to dental care, and we can provide that for them.”
Sharon Stone has been a supporter of Dr. Grossman and board member for Homeless Not Toothless for several years. Writer and producer Antwone Fisher, who was a foster child himself and has become an inspiration and role model to many, is a proud supporter of Homeless Not Toothless. He explains, “This is an opportunity to help foster children get the services they need. Homeless Not Toothless will make a difference in those children’s lives.” Tickets are still available by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Homeless Not Toothless is a 501 © (3) made up of dentists who donate their time to help foster children get the dental care they need.
