Light It Up Blue
Image Orthodontics staff came dressed in all blue on April 2, 2013. The office was decorated with blue lights, blue balloons, blue streamers and much else. Many people visiting the office for regular appointments asked why the office and staff were covered in blue learned about a new awareness day: Light it up Blue. Annually observed April 2, Light it Up Blue is dedicated to the awareness of Autism. Image Orthodontics & Staff is dedicating a year to raise money for Autism awareness, research and support. Staff members baked cupcakes and sold them to raise money towards Autism research. Throughout the year, many more events will be planned by the staff to raise money towards local Autism charities.
2012 Image Orthodontist Founder receives acknowledgment for giving away smiles
Image Orthodontics has been in the business of creating beautiful smiles in Sacramento for several years, and has now opened up a non-profit sector to allow patients that are less fortunate opportunities for treatment. The Annual Russian-Speaking Community Partners Capitol Reception will be celebrating founder of Image Orthodontics, Dr. Yan Kalika's dedication to advocacy work through Smiles for a Lifetime at the California State Capitol, February 21 from 5:30-8:30.
Smiles for a Lifetime is a a non-profit, charitable organization comprised of local chapters throughout the country that provide high quality orthodontic treatment for patients who may not have the opportunity to achieve a beautiful, straight smile without financial assistance. Its mission is to create self-confidence, inspire hope, and change the lives of children in our communities in a dramatic way. The gift of a smile can do all this for a deserving, under-served individual who, in turn, can use this gift to better themselves and their community.
Dr. Kalika founded the San Francisco chapter of Smiles for a Lifetime in hopes of giving back to the community. "My goal with Smiles for a Lifetime is to acknowledge children who go above and beyond, and help them get the self confidence they deserve through a healthy smile."
Each year, ten community activists are named and awarded by elected officials as Russian speaking community service members who have excelled in giving back to their community.
We invite you to come and celebrate the success of Dr. Yan Kalika's Smiles for a Lifetime while meeting the leading advocates of Russian-American community affairs . Meet with elected officials, legislative members, and the most proactive leaders of the Russian-speaking community.
Annual Russian-Speaking Community Partners Capitol Reception is organized by Russian American Media, with support of Council for Cross Cultural Affairs, Slavic Community Center of Sacramento Inc., Council for Slavic-American Affairs, Slavic-American Chamber of Commerce, APAPA, United International Art Association and designated to facilitate a successful assembly of the Russian-American communities through the acknowledgment of the key contributors of the inter-community relations.
Please join us at February 21, 2012 at 5:30PM in the Rotunda Hall at the California State Capitol.
