In the three years since the initiative was launched, Patterson Dental’s Grins for a Good Cause has raised more than $650,000 for breast cancer awareness and support of underserved women and their families. This total includes the $150,000 raised in fiscal 2013 which ended in April.
The Grins for a Good Cause effort pairs Patterson’s network of branch offices with local breast cancer organizations for community events with any proceeds not going to local organizations donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, according to a press release. Money is also raised through special sales of products that are pink in color or packaging. In 2013 these sales accounted for more than $87,000 in Grins for a Good Cause proceeds.
