Gold For Food

Doctors Eick and Birchmeier of Brighton Healthy Smiles were featured in this month’s MDA Journal along with other Livingston county doctors for their participation in the Gold for Food fundraiser.

The Gold for Food fundraiser is a program started by Dr. Bonine wherein donated scrap dental gold from patients’ old crowns and restorations are processed at a refinery and the proceeds are donated to Gleaners Food Bank in Livingston County. The program has been running for 20 years and has contributed to over 600,000 meals for the hungry in our community. The 2015 Gold for Food program raised $6,079 in donated gold, which was then doubled by sponsors.
