DENTSPLY donates over $3,500 to the American Cancer Society in support of breast cancer programs
York, PA – DENTSPLY Professional presented a $3,534 check to the American Cancer Society recently on behalf of its associates and customers. This is the second consecutive year DENTSPLY Professional has made a monetary contribution for every limited edition pink Midwest RDH Freedom Cordless Prophy System sold in support of the fight against breast cancer.
“With so many individuals affected each year by breast cancer, we are extremely proud to contribute to this cause through sales of our pink Midwest RDH Freedom Cordless Prophy System,” said Autumn Anstine, DENTSPLY product manager. Presenting the check on behalf of DENTSPLY are associates who donated money as part of the company's support of Lee National Denim Day, which raised funds and donated them to the American Cancer Society. Like many, Betty McFeely, DENSTPLY‘s Denim Day coordinator, had a personal connection to the cause. “As a breast cancer survivor, I'm very happy to raise donations for Lee National Denim Day in support of the American Cancer Society, and I'm thrilled that DENTSPLY Professional has chosen to donate proceeds of our pink Midwest RDH Freedom Cordless Prophy System to them as well.” Donations help the American Cancer Society discover new ways to prevent, find, and cure breast cancer while ensuring access to mammograms and providing free support to people with the disease.
