|2016 Chip! for Teeth
Tournament Raises Over $58,000 to Help Improve Children's Oral Health
The morning on Friday, June 17th was crisp but the 28 golf teams of charitable golfers still came out swinging to raise money to provide dental care and oral health education for Oregon's most vulnerable children at the 12th Annual Chip! for Teeth Golf Tournament held at Langdon Farms Golf Course.
Congratulations to the low gross winning team of Dr. Jim Windell, Tracy Broders, Bill Swancutt and Pete DeMuniz.
The low net winning team included Chris Kane, Kyle Baisch, Dr. Troy Portash and Brandon Posey. Each player received $100 and will have their names included on the highly coveted Chip! for Teeth tournament trophy.

Paddy Pint Run Raises $8,500 for DFO & Tooth Taxi
Over 300 come out in support of the St. Patrick's Day event
A mere 50 participants ran in this event when it began three years ago by Dr. Tony and Dannielle Ramos - and has it grown since then! It was a sea of green in the streets of Prineville, all to raise funds in support of children's oral health.
"The Paddy Pint Run is a perfect marriage of community involvement, the need for fun/physical activity, and a way that the community can give back to the Tooth Taxi for providing services in Crook County. My family and I feel so honored that our community has embraced this event growing from 50 to over 300 participants in three years. It has become an event many people look forward to, and the fact that it's beneficiary is something I truly believe in, makes me very proud to be the Paddy Pint Run's director." – Dr. Tony Ramos, DFO Board and ODA Member.
