Valentines, and having a heart, go hand in hand. Again this year, The Brace Space, Stuart Davidson Orthodontics, Citadel Oral Surgery and Bezanson Orthodontics teamed together to organize the Learn to Give Event, CE for Charity. Participants came from all over the Maritimes to take part in this event. This year marked the fourth year for Learn to Give, and to date, over an incredible $100,000 has been raised for children’s charities in the Halifax area! Together with very generous sponsors and with 100% of the proceeds going to charity, this year’s event raised $37,246 for Brigadoon Village, a charity that makes it possible for children with chronic illnesses to go to camp and to Phoenix House, a community based organization, dedicated to helping youth and their families in the Halifax area! The 2019 event brought an extraordinary group of speakers to the podium who inspired all those in attendance. They were all excellent presentations, all of them donating to the cause of learning and giving. A true gift from the heart. We are so grateful for everyone who helped make this day a tremendous success. Happy Valentine’s Day to all.
