The Dental Hygiene Class of 2022 at UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry raised over $1,100 across three fundraisers in November.
The fundraising efforts featured sales of cookies, hot dogs, and crafts, all held at Alumni Circle on the fourth floor of the dental school for faculty, staff, students, and residents to stop by during their lunch hour. The $1,178 total funds raised will support needs of the second-year class, such as class activities, a graduation banquet, and purchasing of graduations stoles.
“As the president of the DH Class of 2022, I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the students who helped make these fundraisers a success,” said Reham Abuabeileh. “It wouldn’t have happened without their help and effort. These fundraisers required lots of planning and organization, so thank you.
“Also, I would like to thank everyone who stopped by to support the DH2 class. Thank you for taking the time to contribute and support the DH Class of 2022 for their future class and graduation activities. We’re glad we have such supporting community at UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry. It's sincerely appreciated by each one of us.”
