Foundation’s 10th Annual Gies Awards
for Vision, Innovation and Achievement gala was held on March 20 in
conjunction with the 2017 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.
The 2017 Gies Awards gala was the
foundation’s most successful benefit to date, raising over $400,000. This
year’s benefit drew over 700 attendees, representing 46 dental schools in the United
States and Canada, 11 corporate partners and seven nonprofit organizations. To
date, the ADEAGies Foundation has awarded over $1.2 million in grants and
scholarships to help meet the evolving needs of academic dentistry.
“The outstanding winners of the 2017 Gies Awards were selected from a record
number of nominations this year,” says Leo E. Rouse, D.D.S., FACD, Chair of the
Board of Trustees of the ADEAGies Foundation.
This event would not be possible
without the tremendous support from our sponsors. The ADEAGies Foundation would
like to thank all of the event sponsors, donors and attendees for their
support, and specifically the leadership and financial support that we received
from our Premier Sponsor, Dentsply Sirona, Inc.
