Dr. Richard Staller’s Advanced Dentistry South Florida partnered with Ben & Jerry’s to Freeze Out Childhood Cancer
You have cancer.͟ Nearly 16,000 children this year will hear those dreaded words. Childhood cancer only receives about 4% of all cancer research funding. The team at Advanced Dentistry South Florida paired up with Ben and Jerry’s on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach to help Freeze Out Childhood Cancer!
Delray Beach dentist Dr. Richard Staller and his team at Advanced Dentistry South Florida traded in their dental tools for ice cream scoopers and sprinkles to raise money for the P4Foundation and the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. Both foundations were started by children who are cancer survivors and the money goes towards helping families with a child going through cancer.
Staller and his team wearing bright yellow shirts were hard to miss on East Atlantic Avenue as they encouraged beach goers to get a scoop of their favorite Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and support childhood cancer. A portion of the ice cream sales as well as donations from the community directly benefited families with a child with cancer. The bills still must be paid regardless of the medical situation.͞
“Giving back to our community is important to us. One of our team members was directly impacted from childhood cancer and what better way to raise awareness and funds than through our local community.” Kelli Carter, Practice Administrator
Supporters of the event included celebrity scoopers Delray Beach Mayor Cary Glickstein, Jayson Koss, Delivery Dudes CEO and Founder and Coach Lane Kiffin, Head Football Coach of Florida Atlantic University where Dr. Richard Staller is also the Official Team Dentist.
“It was great to meet Coach Kiffin and welcome him to Delray Beach. Neither of us scooped ice cream before and agreed it is far more difficult than it looks, but it was great to support Dr. Staller and all the charitable work he and his office staff do in our community.”- Mayor Cary Glickstein.
“For us to be able to help out with a great cause like this is great.”- Coach Lane Kiffin.
“To continually see the City of Delray Beach come together and, not only support local businesses but amazing causes as well, truly showcases the heart of our city. We feel so grateful to have been chosen to participate and raise awareness for childhood cancer research.”- Jayson Koss, CEO and Founder of Delivery Dudes.
“We believe in making a difference in the lives of children affected by cancer by providing them with educational resources, unconditional emotional and financial support, and we believe in ensuring a future without cancer by contributing to childhood cancer research.”- Gino Vizzi, teenager and Founder of P4Foundation.
