Event Description

The fifth annual “Cinderfella” hosted by the Texas Association of Women Dentists (TAWD) Chapter at UTHealth School of Dentistry is set for 5-8 p.m. Thursday, April 4 in the Cooley Center. Cinderfella is a comical beauty pageant in which male dental students compete for the title of “Mr. Gold Crown.” This year’s theme is "Deep in the Heart of Texas." Tickets are $10 each (cash or Venmo) and will be sold from noon to 1 p.m. daily April 1-4 in the Student Lounge on the third floor of the School of Dentistry. Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door, but seating is limited. Each ticket includes admission and a wristband for food and drink.  

In addition to the pageant, TAWD will hold a silent auction on April 4 outside the Fullerton Classroom (SOD 4310) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 4, continuing in the Cooley Center until 6:30 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Mina Rosenthal-Eames Fund, which was created in memory of a UTHealth student who lost her life to domestic violence. The fund helps cover the cost of dental care for domestic violence victims who might otherwise not be able to pay for treatment.
